A full-time potter for close to 40 years, Andy Smith studied ceramics at Wingate College in North Carolina in 1976, and also studied at the Arrowmont School of Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Andy has developed a style of raku pottery which uses traditional forms with highly controlled design elements.
