Andrew Ludick is a ceramics artist based in Castlecomer, Co. Kilkenny. Born in the United States, he majored in Illustration at the Columbus College of Art and Design, Ohio before moving to Ireland in 2003. Andrew’s work has slowly evolved towards forms that illustrate the natural properties of clay and the processes he uses to create them.
The building of these forms involves coiling and pinching the clay to create vases, bowls and various other shapes. This slow and meditative process takes him into a space that allows a natural, organic progression to happen where the form seems to build itself. The built form is often either seen as a blank canvas to draw shapes on or an interesting form to complement with patterns. The final pieces are covered in a clear transparent glaze, which serves to deepen the colours and seal the clay so it can be used for functional purposes. Andrew’s work is influenced by Native American and African indigenous art and music, as well as artists and musicians such as Paul Klee, John ffrench, Peter Bruegel, Lester Young and Thelonious Monk.
