We are showing a distinctive, new range of Andrew's individually-hand-thrown porcelain or stoneware vases which have ancient influences in their curves and details, reminiscent of Bronze Age ceramics. Each vessel is thrown individually and unique in shape and feature detail.


The barium-glazed turquoise or Reitz green porcelain vases are designed either with a straight, narrow or a flared neck, a bulbous bowl and with small lugs. They are reduction fired to achieve the gorgeous, burnished-smooth surface.


The smaller stoneare vessels are round and wide necked, with small lugs and glazed with Reitz green.


    Producing pieces from locally-sourced materials since 1981, Andrew makes individual and hand-built pieces in stoneware and porcelain, reduction fired to 1280 degrees Celsius.


    Both a maker and teacher, Andrew was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is a graduate of Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen. The former head of art at Broadway School, Perry Bar, Birmingham, he plays a central role in both the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA), being treasurer since 1987, and the Midland Potters' Association (MPA) where he is currently vice chairman. He was chair from 2009 to 2020.


    Exhibiting in galleries across the UK, Andrew's city centre studio gallery is in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
