Amanda Banham

Amanda Banham’s journey with pottery began in 2003 when she took an evening class in throwing. She did not get very far with throwing on the wheel as she was pregnant at the time with her third son and so every week the wheel got a little further away from her. She then found hand building. Amanda worked for a while at Rachel Dormor Studio in Cambridge learning all things clay and has been working full time as a potter in her own studio for three years. She is also an active member of Anglian Potters.

Amanda’s villages and houses are born out of a love of story telling and narrative. A life long Essex girl, Amanda takes her influence and inspiration from her surroundings, the houses and colours of Thaxted and Saffron Walden were the starting point for her ceramic houses. 

Amanda has a degree in Illustration and a love of screen printing which she translates onto her ceramics. She also hugely enjoys Raku Firing with fellow members of  “The Secret Raku Club.”  Most of her small houses are fired using this process.
