Carolina folk pots and folk pottery from England inspire the pots. The throwing technique and discipline was learned during a two-year apprenticeship with Matt Jones. Matt is a former apprentice of Connecticut potter Todd Piker and North Carolina potter Mark Hewitt. The throwing cycle typically will be a 4 to 6 week process starting with the turning of larger pieces like vases, bowls, and pitchers. Andrew then starts making plates, pie plates, serving bowls and finally finishing with small pots like mugs, small bowls, and bud vases. Once Andrew can pick up the freshly made pots without damaging them, he then decorates each pot and then raw glazes them with a variety of different glazes. The throwing cycle ends with the brushwork decoration being applied to the fully dried pots. With the cycle complete, the kiln is then loaded.
