Tim Andrews has gained an International reputation for his distinctive smoke-fired and raku ceramics. He makes individual Raku work – black and white with linear decoration or burnished muted coloured slips. The pieces are usually thrown, although some new work is hand built.
Tim trained as studio apprentice to David Leach, from 1978—79, followed by two years at Dartington Pottery Training Workshop. Between 1994—95 he lectured part-time at Exeter College and was a guest lecturer at Plymouth College of Art and Design. He has lectured in Advanced Raku in Italy and in Denmark.
His works have been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions throughout the UK and in China, India, USA, Japan, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and Sweden.
You’ll find them in many public and private collections including the Stoke on Trent and Liverpool Museums, Ashmolean Museum, St John’s College Oxford, Donna Karan New York, Lord Chancellor Lord Irving, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Abromavich Collection, Coutts Bank and Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
