Andrew John Richards

CATEGORY: Earthstone
METHOD: Hand Building
TEXTURE: Smooth Textured
FIRING RANGE: 1120°c – 1280°c

My work is not over decorated and relies more on the forms and the subtle relationship of intuitive decoration and fluid brush movement. I also investigate and experiment with Oxides and ceramic stains to create new colour combinations. Experimentation and creativity go hand in hand and the process of making is evolutionary with each kiln firing creating new glaze pathways. My work compliments food and I create a variety of pottery that is suitable for oven, microwave and the dishwasher.

Andrew works with ES 5 20%.
