ClaySpace Director of Marketing
Amber’s love of clay started in high school, and has spent her time since then always coming back to it as her favorite creative outlet. Taking classes occasionally in the evening whenever it was available, where ever she was. First classes and a resident artist program in Charlotte, NC, then off to Brisbane, Australia for a year and some classes, and then back home to Minneapolis, MN where she was able to find another resident artist program to be apart of for a few year. After an 8 year hiatus from any consistent classes or studio work, due to a job with constant travel, Amber ended up in Villa Park, IL looking for a studio. In 2021 she found ClaySpace, became a sublet, married a guy whose last name is Clay, and happily became a resident artist in 2022. By day Amber leads a marketing team at IBM, and at night you can usually find her making the small leaves that always seem to be in the bisque and glaze shelves or hanging out with her husband and cat.
