Amy Mackle is an Irish ceramic maker who creates predominantly large scale installations using coloured porcelains, earthenware clays and found materials. Her work is inspired by her sense of place, the landscape and the relationship between the natural and the manufactured in our environment. Amy completed her BA in Contemporary and Applied art at Ulster University in Belfast in 2016. She was awarded the graduate residency from 2016 – 2017. In 2018 Amy won the European Future Lights in ceramics competition, making her an ambassador for European ceramics. This has lead to extensive work throughout Europe exhibiting and promoting ceramics as both a career path and an art form. In September of this year Amy began a practice based PhD at Ulster centred around constructing place and identity through urban mark-making. She splits her time between her studio in the city and her studio on the shores of Carlingford Lough in the North East of Ireland.
