Amber Zuber

 Back to fellows

The Canadian Artist Amber Zuber working method is process oriented and creates expressive ceramic sculptures. In search of the emotional quality of the clay and with trust in her intuition, rough and close to nature works develop that seem like excavated from the earth. Gaps and fragile organic forms dominate her new-found aesthetic, which is in stark contrast to the usual cold smoothness of the material and bears her unmistakeable fingerprint.

Zuber studied ceramics at the Sheridan College's School of Crafts and Design and her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in Toronto. After her Masters in Ceramics at the Royal College of Art, London, she had new opportunities and exhibitions in Canada and abroad followed. Her work was for example shown as part of the Young Masters Art Prize Shortlist Exhibition at Gallery 8, London and her own exhibition My Canadian Landscape at the Museum of Ceramic Art, Toronto.
