Mindy Andrews Alberta

 The work I create reflects my strong love of place; where I grew up, where I am now, and recent places I have visited.

All of these influences feed my love of nature. Trees and other natural objects influence the decoration that I place on my work. 
Through the use of porcelain clay I am able to create beautiful light and depth, and trees or flowers are painted on the vessels using a variety of slips and underglazes. Sometimes I will carve the trees to suggest the texture of bark. The resulting pieces are sometimes functional, while others are sculptural.
