Amy Pellegrino, 2019-2020 Artist in Residence
Amy Pellegrino is a Cincinnati based artist, having received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Spatial Arts from Northern Kentucky University. She primarily works in ceramic, both on the pottery wheel and hand-building and sculpting. She is currently an Artist in Residence at Core Clay, located in Walnut Hills in Cincinnati.
Amy’s work is inspired by memories of her unique upbringing in her surrounding environment. She grew up and currently resides on a private drive established by her ancestors, which can be described as a pocket of pristine nature hidden just outside the city limits of Cincinnati. Playing in the forest, creeks and meadows with her cousins and family formed her most appreciated memories dealing with the natural world. These precious memories fuel the content of her work, as Amy hopes to one day be an environmental artist, making art about the world she loves and longs to protect.
