Amanda Hickey was born in London, Ontario and shortly after moved to Barbados where she spent her early years in the sun. She and her family moved back to London at the age of 3 where she has resided ever since…dreaming of the beach. Amanda received a post-graduate diploma in Corporate Communication and Public Relations from Fanshawe College, after graduating with Honours Specialization in Sociology from Western University. She joined Unity Project’s Development team in 2011 as Communications and Resource Development Manager. Amanda has been potting for just 4 years and has sold her works, meant to be beautiful and functional, at the Rag Bag Bazaar, privately by commission, and to friends and family.
The tradition of gathering around the table with a good meal and good company is extremely important to me. When creating works I am inspired by food, both the process and the memories made while making it. Food safe glazes are used on all of my works, with the hope that they will be used to create memories around your table.
