Andrew Hill

From a very young age, Hill studied ceramics at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, Surrey, UK.  In the 1990s he worked at Wrecclesham Pottery, Farnham, under the guidance of Phillip Harris, the last of the Harris family to own the pottery before it became a museum. Hill undertook more formal art education in 2002, with a first class Diploma in Fine Art and a Three Dimensional Design BA Honours degree, specialising in ceramics from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. Followed by a Postgraduate Certificate in Education from Sheffield Hallam University, UK. After this he opened his first art studio in Holmfirth West Yorkshire, producing high fired paper porcelain sculptural forms. After a successful period of exhibiting throughout the UK, Hill moved into teaching at the prestigious Lady Manors School, Bakewell, specialising in three-dimensional design, fine art and ceramics.

Along with his family, Hill relocated to New Zealand, setting up a new custom-built studio in Te Anau, Southland.
