Tim Andrews Potter and Raku Artist – 40 Years On

Sunday, November 18th, 11.00am – 4.00pm , Ladock Village Hall, Ladock,TR2 4PG
Tim Andrews is known internationally for his individual raku/smoke-fired and porcelain work. He has regular large exhibitions both in the UK and around the world and recently celebrated 40 years making and 25 years at his studio and gallery in Woodbury, East Devon. He has written two bestselling books on Raku ceramics and his pieces have been acquired for many museums and other public and private collections around the world including Arizona University and The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
“The transformation of raw materials – mud to art – is a fascinating journey of evolutionary transition, peppered with risk-taking step changes. My own work represents an on-going dialogue between the technical sophistication of processes, serendipity, and timeless human qualities. After 40 years of making, my pieces have become more minimal in style; yet the simplicity and apparent effortlessness aimed for stems from a labour-intensive, unforgiving and demanding technique, together with a dramatic and intense firing process. Ultimately, for me, each piece has to justify its existence with a quiet, yet powerful, presence.”
Training originally with David Leach and then at Dartington, Tim has worked from his present studio and gallery in Woodbury, East Devon for the last twenty five years. He is a writer and exhibition curator and also teaches and lectures widely in the UK and abroad. He is a Fellow of the Crafts Potters Association of Great Britain and Honorary President of the Westcountry Potters Association.
