Andy Smith

Andy has been a full-time potter since 1982. Largely self-taught after classes at Wingate College and Arrowmont, he has crafted a unique style of raku pottery. He began with highly decorative, colorful work in classical shapes; and has developed a new line of sagger raku that is much more organic. He still continues to work with the more standard black and white and has begun to combine the firing techniques.


Andy lives and works at the studio at his home in Marshville, North Carolina.
