Emmanuelle Wambach

Emmanuelle Wambach received her Bachelor of Arts from Swarthmore College in 2008 and her Master of Fine Arts from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2012. She has shown work in Pittsburgh as part of the Three Rivers Juried Visual Art Exhibition and as part of the National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts National Conference. As a woman of mixed cultural and racial decent, Wambach uses her culture and everyday experiences as inspiration for her work. In her classes, she teaches her students to use their own experiences to create pieces that express their sense of self and their love for their community. Wambach feels that to create meaningful work, artists should learn from their surroundings and the wider world. Having the opportunity to create art opens the mind to different modes of thinking and new creative ways of seeing the world that can help with any path in life. Emmanuelle currently lives in Pittsburgh and teaches art at Union Project, Ton Pottery, And Sweetwater Center for the Arts.
