Bev Andrews lives in Alexandria, Va. She began a second career as a ceramic artist 15 years ago.

Always experimenting with different forms whether thrown on the wheel, hand built or a combination of both, Bev aims to create a unique and diverse body of work. Her lidded vessels often have distinctive handles sometimes incorporating stones or wood to add character. Influenced by her travels overseas and inspired by nature, her goal is to create pieces that are complex, but still maintain simplicity and grace. She has embraced these same concepts in her beaded art jewelry, now part of her portfolio.

As a certified teacher in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, a Japanese form of flower arranging, Bev designs and makes containers for use in these arrangements. She has used her containers in several exhibits at the National Arboretum. She sells Ikebana containers in Studio 342 at special shows twice a year. Please contact her e-mail for upcoming dates!

Although she is most recognized for her dramatic black and white raku vessels, she fires much of her work in wood and salt kilns.

Her prices range from $40 to $300.

Bev is a juried member of the Scope Gallery in Studio 19 where her ceramic work may be viewed and purchased.
