Amy Smith plates at Lincoln Berean Church

I saw these plates yesterday in Lincoln, Nebraska at the Berean Church. There wasn’t a tag for any of them, but I’m confident in saying that they were carefully crafted by one of my favorite ceramic artists (maybe my favorite potter), Amy Smith. I’m sharing the photos even though my cameraphone blew them out multiple times.

There is a glaze on the white plates, a fabulously delicate one with matte and crystaline qualities — from what I could tell where I stood anyway. The plates stood on a shelf over my head, out of the reach of church children racing through the hallway.

He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
