Amy Von Bargen is a studio potter from Minneapolis. She received her BA from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Von Bargen focuses on handbuilt, slab-constructed, functional pieces. Her soft, buttery glazes add a sense of comfort to her pieces—making them fitting for both everyday and special occasions. Currently, Von Bargen works as a studio assistant at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts. She also maintains a studio in the historic Northrup King building in northeast Minneapolis.  Her work can also be found at Seasons of St. Croix in Hudson, Wisconsin, and Bell Street Gallery in LaPointe, Wisconsin.
