Amy Whittingham

Workshop Coordinator - Glass Department

Amy completed a BA (Hons) in Applied Arts, glass and metals at Arts University Plymouth in 2005 and an MA in Glass at the University of Sunderland in 2006. Amy makes cast glass sculpture and jewellery, which begin as intricately carved waxes.

In 2016 Amy completed working on The Cold Truth, a commission for Effervescent and Children’s Charity Barnardo’s. This included creating moulds of 50 pairs of shoes, some cast in glass and some in ice, for an exhibition curated by young people.

Amy is involved extensively in the Plymouth art scene, including co-curating the Chrysalis exhibition for Flameworks at the Devonport Guildhall, being part of the Plymouth Art Weekender and being a Creative Director of Flameworks.

Amy supports students in working in glass across the Crafts & Material Practices programmes and is a specialist in kiln-formed glass.
