Andrew Linderman is a studio potter and former high school chemistry teacher originally from the Twin Cities and currently living and working in Milwaukee, WI. He makes functional pots to make the best moments in life better, to make the mundane moments more enjoyable, and to make the difficult moments more bearable. Linderman uses his background in chemistry to create glazes that are enhanced by the firing process in which he produces his pots. Recently, He has also explored how the wood-firing process affects the surfaces of his pots. He continually strives to create work in which the functionality of a piece is enhanced by its aesthetic and tactile qualities. Linderman graduated from Luther College (Decorah, IA) in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry. He has learned his art and craft primarily from George Lowe during his undergraduate studies, S.C. Rolf post-graduation and wood firing from Simon Levin.. Linderman also teaches classes at Cream City Clay in Milwaukee, WI.
