Amal Tamari is a Palestinian-American craftsperson living in North Carolina. She is currently a Core Fellow at Penland School of Craft, taking workshops in the clay, textiles, and wood studios. Amal’s work focuses on finding splendor in everyday objects and capturing their beauty through still lifes. Her work straddles the line between functional and sculptural, and her clay works are always coil-pinched with deep red clay. Amal’s love of ceramics began in 2018 at Earlham College under the teaching of Judy Wojcik.
