Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Amanda Stern has studied painting, glass, ceramics and sculpture at SUNY Purchase, University of Miami, Alfred University, Pratt Fine Arts Center, Pilchuck Glass School, Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Center and Jacksonville University. Her experience across manufacturing and studio art has led to her interest in industrial processes and how we relate to material objects, to our surrounding environments and to one another. She explores her interest in relationships through the assemblage of multiple parts, color and line. Amanda currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
