Amy Huppler, originally of Wisconsin, USA, now lives and creates her beautiful ceramics on the picturesque northern shore of Shuswap Lake outside of Chase, BC.
Her pottery is made of earthenware clay that she paints with a majolica glaze. Majolica is a technique of using a white glaze with on-glaze painting.
These ceramics are then fired in a low temperature electric kiln. Amy Huppler learned her craft at the University of Colorado in Boulder as well as in workshops with the American potters, Betty Woodman, Anne Currier, and David Shaner.
In Canada, she continued her education with more workshops and in 2 intensive workshops with Bruce Cochrane and Walter Ostrum at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design.
These days she is a member of the CABC, Circle Craft, the BC Potters Guild, the Thompson Valley Potters Guild, and is a past president of the North Shuswap Artisans.
She regularly exhibits at the Kamloops Art Gallery, in Kamloops, BC, the Shuswap Festival of the Arts, and the Shuswap Art Gallery in Salmon Arm, BC.
As well as her regular work, she does custom orders and is ready and willing to try things with other people's design ideas.
