Amanda-Sue Rope

Inspired by the geometry and richness of the built environment Amanda-Sue’s constructed vessels incorporate both wheel-thrown and hand-building techniques.

Recent work has focused on themes of stacking and assembling to create lidded-vessels and columnar and bottle-like forms punctuated with areas of detailing or rhythmic textured surfaces. Colours range from earthy and elemental to spots of saturated acid and pastel hues created using a range of oxides and engobes. Glaze is applied to the inside of the vessel accentuating the transition from exterior to interior. 

The works can be experienced either standing alone or in groups echoing sculptural still-life and cityscapes.
