Andrew Hill
Hill is a ceramicist specialising in dynamic Raku fired sculptures of the human form and focussing on emotional responses and interactions.

Hill's work encourages the observer to imagine past, present and future conversations between his sculptures and imagined others. The meanings behind the sculptures can be perceived to have both dark and light connotations, often containing fun, love, anxiety, sexual tension, anger, but always drama within their sensitive expressions, form and posture.

Biographical information

From a very young age, Hill studied pottery at the West Surrey College of Art UK, moving on in the 1990’s to work at Farnham Pottery under the guidance of Phillip Harris, the last of the Harris family to own the pottery before it became a museum.

Hill undertook more formal art education in 2002, with a Three Dimensional Design BA Honours degree from Manchester Metropolitan University UK, after which he started his first studio in Holmfirth West Yorkshire, producing high fired paper porcelain sculptural forms.

After a successful period of selling these forms throughout the UK and teaching art and three dimensional design, Hill made a transition to working in the exciting medium of Raku, the current basis of his work, from his new studio in Te Anau, Southland.
