Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1949, Andrew Matheson is a graduate of Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen. He is the former head of art at Broadway School, Perry Bar, Birmingham. Producing pieces from locally-sourced materials since 1981, Andrew works mainly in stoneware and porcelain reduction fired to 1280° C. He plays a central role in both the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) being treasurer since 1987 and the Midland Potters' Association (MPA) where he is currently chairman.
The wheel is central to Andrew's method of making and all his work is reduction fired to with glazes based on classic recipes.
The crackle glaze varies in size according to the thickness of application which until it stained after the final firing is an exciting event for him. He likes the skill and discipline of repetition throwing as it gives the knowledge and experience of the manipulation of clay to produce the more individual pieces.
