Andrew McIntyre:

“Memorable conversations, traditions, celebrations, relationships are begun and strengthened during events surrounded by objects such as people, food and the pots that move in and out of these spaces. These experiences and time spent with loved ones is where I draw my connection to pots made to facilitate intimacy, consumption and nourishment. This work aims to engage interaction and focus attention through placement, and presentation.

The sense of physical touch through the investigation of material, form and surface is important. Capturing that gasp of breath inside a form through the movement of my hand or the push of my finger gives my work a sense containment and life.  My work is affected by my investigation of many techniques and processes, allowing simple form and texture to be more apparent.  These pots beg your attention.  Firing methods of wood and soda has drawn my interest because of the way it permanently record time and fire. Pooling of glazes and dramatic flame marks enhance the uniqueness of each object by giving you a surface to get lost in. The preparation, physical and mental act within wood firing reinforce these ideas of relationships, community, and interaction between people ​and nature. It is my desire that the work facilitate new relationships between people, food and object.  My pots live on the table as well as where celebration inspires life.”
