02 May Episode #22: Andrew Molleur
Inspired by architecture, passionate about materials.
Today I’ll be talking to Andrew Molleur. Andrew is a ceramicist and designer living and working in Kingston, NY. Andrew uses traditional and modern techniques to design and produce his functional inlaid ceramic pieces.
Andrew was first introduced to his medium while growing up in rural Connecticut and his connection to the material was immediate.
On this episode we discuss:
- How Andrew discovered his passion for Ceramics at an early age.
- The influence of a vibrant community in the Hudson Valley.
- Leaving his architecture job in Manhattan, to help an artist in Upstate New York.
It all started when I was 15 and my mother got me throwing classes and it kind of evolved from there. It was the material that always stayed with me.
