Profile

Coaxed from a single ball of porcelain clay, each creation by Andrew Rouse is an expression of the human hand: the artist’s, as it forms a unique work of art using the most ancient of pottery techniques—and yours, as it naturally cradles a finished piece.

Before the introduction of the potter’s wheel, pot-making was the outcome of the artful manipulation of clay into an object of utilitarian beauty. The heir to this “pinch-pot” technique, Andrew Rouse refines the process to create objects of rare appeal through a high level of craftsmanship that retains evidence of the artist’s hand: with each black bowl, for example, the exterior is left unglazed, literally revealing the artist’s imprint. Andrew Rouse uses glazes in distinctive ways on the exceptionally thin, organic forms: as an accent as well as a feature. Some pots simply have a rim of color, whereas in others color is used more boldly, coating the entire internal surface, creating contrast with the black unglazed exterior.
