Sam Knopp

With interests in mid-century design, pop-culture, and craftsmanship, Sam Knopp creates functional ceramics that are playful, minimal, and richly tactile. Excited by the materiality and process of ceramics, she researches and develops her own clay-bodies and glazes putting them together in unexpected combinations to explore the relationship of surface to form, manufactured to handmade, and function to sculpture.

Originally from Red Deer, she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2013. There she was the recipient of the Circle Craft Graduation Award and the BMO First Art Award for BC. Pursuing both a functional and sculptural practice, she has exhibited work across Canada, and in 2015, she was awarded the Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for Emerging Artist in Craft. Since returning home to Alberta, she has set-up a studio in the village of Irma.
