Amy Uthus, ceramist
NDSU Visual Arts is pleased to welcome alumni and ceramist Amy Uthus.
Ms. Uthus is a 2007 Magna cum Laude graduate of NDSU Visual Arts who went on to study at the International Ceramics Studio in Kesckemét, Hungary and received her M.F.A. in Artistry-Ceramics from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. She is currently the Artist-in-Residence and Education Coordinator at the RDG Dahlquist Art Studio in Des Moines, Iowa.
Ms. Uthus believes all individuals have an inherent longing to connect with other things. She draws on her love for nature and wide open landscapes, the beauty of light interacting with porcelain, and personal experience to create silent, fragile works of art. Her aim is to simultaneously provoke and provide sustenance for one's deepest yearnings, allowing viewers to transcend their everyday troubles and worries.
Ms. Uthus has exhibited extensively throughout the nation, including galleries in Colorado, Massachusetts, Maryland, Nebraska, and North Dakota. She has been featured in Ceramics Monthly and has received numerous grants and awards.
