Andy Urwin is an artist/ceramicist originally from the Yorkshire dales.
He studied art at Harrogate college and then a BA Hons degree in studio ceramics at Falmouth college of Art in Cornwall.
He first became inspired by houses after moving to London and became obsessed with drawing urban landscapes.
Andy has carried on this theme to the present day but now combines his two core values, art and nature. He makes ceramic houses inspired by the traditional Japanese Raku technique. A rustic if somewhat precarious technique using all of nature’s elements, earth, air, fire and water.
The wonderfully free and unpredictable nature of this process is what drives Andy to produce beautifully tactile, rustic Raku pieces.
