Andy Shaw
Baton Rouge, LA

Andy Shaw received his MFA in 2000 from Alfred University in Alfred, New York, and his BA in 1992 from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he studied history.  Currently he resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he is assistant professor of ceramics at Louisiana State University.  “In order for a pot to be functional it must be used,” he notes. “As the potter, I design opportunities for the homeowner to add color to the porcelain, and to incorporate it actively with other objects currently in the home. These purposefully designed thematic openings promote substantial connections between the pottery and its audience by drawing out practical and aesthetic utility within an advocacy for creative living.”
