Amanda Tong Ceramics
Amanda is trained in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. With a real passion for the subject, Amanda graduated with a First Class Honours and went straight on to establish her own label - Amanda Tong Ceramics. As a ceramic designer- maker, she aspires to raise awareness of the artistic value in traditional craftsmanship through retelling forgotten stories and revisiting rituals within different cultures.
Amanda’s classic marble collection is inspired by the Yin-Yang Food Therapy - one of the most fundamental concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Each of the ceramic pieces is hand-thrown by mixing together black and white porcelain, creating a material metaphor that symbolises the unique mix of Yin-Yang energies within our bodies - specifically how the opposing energies are constantly evolving to find balance and co-exist. Her work is a constant reminder for us to maintain a healthy & balanced lifestyle.
