Andrew Stephenson creates functional and large scale decorative works in clay. His work is informed by his love of the folk pottery of England, his formal arts education, and a two year apprenticeship with a NC potter. He has a wide appreciation and knowledge of the rich traditions and techniques of traditional NC potters, this background informs many of his own artistic decisions.
His work is distinguished by graceful thrown forms, and skilled attention to function and decoration. Rich glazes often incorporate glass accents added before the wood firings.
