Andy Lang produces quality, high-fired stoneware and is based in Leith, Edinburgh.
The majority of his glazes are based on wood ash, harvested from the burning of recycled scrap wood donated by local makers and also the Edinburgh Tool Library. Further supply comes from the oil drum braziers at The Pitt Street Market, Leith.
Ash glazes have a unique quality and are based on ancient, traditional recipes.
Andy offers a series of unique, one-off pieces and also a range of table ware, carefully designed with functionality and durability in mind.
Inspirations include ancient Roman, Greek and Sumerian ceramics, along with traditional Oriental concepts of form and design.
Andy trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and has been teaching in Community Education for over 30 years.
He is currently involved in setting up Leith Community Pottery, a social enterprise, where a range of classes and 1-2-1 tuition will be available.
Commissions are welcome and table ware can be supplied for bistros and restaurants.
Work is held in public collections, including at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow and the McManus Gallery, Dundee.
