Andrew started making pottery after dropping out of university. He told CBC: “After dropping out of university, a friend made me sit in on an art history class at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. I was enthralled and signed up for a foundation year, where I tried everything. I loved it all, but when my hands touched clay, I was drawn to its romanticism and creative possibilities and knew right away that I wanted to become a potter.”

Describing his pottery style in three words, he said: “Modern, striking, and functional”.
