This is Andrew's first KC Clay Guild Teabowl National. The first image is his fabulous entry!
Andrew creates his work through the processes of throwing & handbuilding, blending visions of landscapes he has seen.
He has been in numerous exhibits, among them the 2017 TWIN CUPS, a juried show of...you guessed it...cups. T.C is a show sponsored by the Missouri Western Clay Guild at Missouri Western University in St. Joseph, MO.
A funny thing happened on the way to finding info about the potter, Andrew McGarva. There are 2 of them...one living in the UK. The American is 'ours'!
Andrew is a multiple year participant in KC Clay Guild Teabowl National, with one teabowl in 2017 (the first one in his gallery), 2014, 2013 and two in 2015. I think he has a record number of accepted pieces! I should check into that.
He is drawn to Japanese and Korean pottery, in particular, teabowls!
