I wish you all a happy spring and invite you to venture out in this warmer weather to see Andrew’s newest porcelain ceramic pieces! There is a strong possibility that you will find that perfect unique wedding or shower gift in this body of new work.

Andrew has been busy at the wheel and has produced some beautiful and functional bowls, vases and jars which he will be premièring on May 5th and 6th. The pieces vary in size and price and many have surfaces enhanced with hand painted floral theme illustrations. Showcased also will be a selection of Andrew’s teapots which always make an impressive gift.

Join us for refreshments at the Saturday evening artist’s reception or stop by any other time over the weekend to peruse the new work. Andrew will be there to meet and greet you to discuss his newest creations and special orders.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Blessings,

Terry Boswell

Crystalline Glaze Jar

Crystaline glaze jar by Andrew Boswell and Phil Hamling

Crystaline glaze, grolleg porcelain jar, about 14" tall, by Andrew Boswell and Phil Hamling $480-

This exquisite grolleg porcelain piece is a combination of pottery, chemistry and geology. It was thrown on the potter’s wheel by Andrew Boswell. The glazing process was a collaborative effort between Andrew and Phil Hamling using Phil’s technically intricate crystalline glaze methods. Andrew’s fluid form is the perfect canvas for Phil’s ceramic engineering expertise. When this process is done precisely correct, crystals grow in the glaze surface during the firing of the pot. The patterns formed look very similar to the crystal patterns of frost on a window pane.

 

 

 

 

If you are interested in purchasing this piece please email a note and  your phone number to [email protected] and I will give you a call back. (The online catalog and shopping cart are still down. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.)

Images from the Teapots & Accessories Show Plus Fall Photos

Thank you to everyone who visited us last weekend for the Teapots and Accessories ~ Exhibit and Artist’s Reception! Below you will find some photos that I took of the exhibit to create a little virtual participation for those of you who couldn’t make it. You will have to provide your own tea and cookies and wine and cheese to simulate the artist’s reception a little more robustly! :^)

In addition to Andy’s work, there were teapots by Ray and photos by me. Some of these pieces are now just a bit of wrapping paper away from being lovely wedding gifts! Others went home with happy new owners and some are still available at the gallery! Check the “Visit” page for gallery hours or, since I have yet to add e-commerce to this website (Which I WILL be doing soon!), email me at [email protected] if you are interested in purchasing a piece and having it mailed.

Andrew’s robust porcelain forms are accentuated by high fired glazes applied in multi-layers to create surfaces rich in depth. Color schemes include ohata, pictured top left, true blue, pictured bottom left, celedon green, winter white and gloss black. These glazes, reflecting the influence of historic Chinese pottery, Japanese pottery and Venetian glass, complement Andrew’s modern yet classic aesthetic.

The exhibit and reception will be held in the Bostree Gallery special event room, next door to the gallery.

 

“Andrew’s teapot forms are round generous, and joyous. They look like happy Buddhas.”
