Introduction Andrew Stephenson was born in Birmingham, England in 1972 and moved to the states with his family in 1979. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from East Carolina University in 1996. Shortly after graduation he moved to Asheville, NC to take a position as a resident potter at the Odyssey Center for the ceramic Arts. Andrew has always loved the folk pottery of England and especially the wood fired salt-glazed pottery of North Carolina, so when he was offered a two year apprenticeship with Matt Jones, a former apprentice of Todd Piker and Mark Hewitt, he jumped at the chance. When Andrew was finished with his apprenticeship he built his own wood fired kiln at his studio in Rutherfordton, NC. Andrew continues the long tradition of wood firing in North Carolina and sells his work in galleries throughout the southeast. Andrew also teaches classes at Blue Ridge Community College in Hendersonville, and also just recently at John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. He is available to teach workshops around the country at your local college, craft school, or art guild.
