Featured Artist: Amanda Wright
We are pleased to have Amanda Wright join the Nimbus family of instructors. She will be leading new programs and instruction in ceramics. Her work features traditional forms with white stoneware and neutral-colored glazes enlivened with a modern spirit. Amanda creates utilitarian art intended for everyday use.
After leaving a career as a fashion designer and relocating from southern California to Napa Valley, Amanda discovered her passion for ceramics as a student at Nimbus Arts and soon established her now burgeoning studio.
Her beautiful and artistic creations can now be found around the world. See more about Amanda and her work here: amandawrightpottery.com – and tune in for more news about Nimbus Ceramics studio updates and classes!
“I believe in the power of art to inspire and connect us. I founded Nimbus Arts to bring art to more people. It is both an honor and a source of ongoing wonder to see all the ways that art makes us think, brings us joy, and makes the world a better place.”

“In any discussion about Napa Valley culture, the first two words that invariably come up are “wine” and “food.” But there’s a third dimension to the region- the arts- that has been steadily expanding in scope and inspiring residents and visitors to enjoy and embrace their creative side. At the forefront of this cultural dimension is Nimbus Arts!”
North Bay Bohemian, May 2017
