Andrew Rowland Throwing a Pot

My venture into pottery started in the summer of 2023, amidst the scenic backdrop of Montreat in the North Carolina mountains. This new path wasn’t just about learning a skill; it was about connecting with the peacefulness and grounding nature of working with clay.

Pottery for me is a practice of mindfulness, a way to find tranquility in the creative process. Each piece I make reflects my journey of personal growth through experimenting with various pottery techniques and forms.

My goal is to share the calm I discover in pottery with others, offering pieces that embody simplicity and peace. I’m continuously exploring and challenging the limits of clay, aiming to create works that resonate with those seeking a touch of serenity in their lives.

Thank you for exploring my work. I hope it brings a sense of calm and inspiration to your day.
