Collection: Andrew Richards : Potter :

I approach the making of my work with spontaneity and immediacy, discovering the form during the process of making it. My extensive alterations and layering of materials added to the clay emphasises the plasticity and surface qualities of that material while achieving the feel of a landscape. I seek to push the disorganisation and the subsequent reorganisation of the vessel from being simply a pot to becoming an abstract object in the art ceramic sculptural world. 

Beginning with thrown or hand built clay, I use the wheel to shape the exterior surface. While I may have an understanding of the shape, it is through careful manipulation of the surface with clastic sedimentary stones and oxides that the exterior appearance of the vessel is derived. Textures from the Earth series of work reflects the landscape of the Welsh mountains and Coastline. The layering of clastic sedimentary stones, beach quartz stones, granite and brushed layered glazes adds colour and textural effects that are congruent to each piece making each vessel unique and individual.
