Andrew Clark explores his interest in machinery and engineering through ceramics. Influenced by schematic cutaway drawings and simple mechanical devices, Clark aims to make functional pottery that features a mechanized process. Terra sigillata and underglaze allows Clark to put moving parts into his work. Bright contrasting colors separate the layers he create which is similar to schematic drawings separating each part of the machine through color. Through the process of problem solving, Clark seeks to find a combination of a simple functional vessel and a complex machine.
