The Andrew Wicks Effect

Andrew’s distinctive Pod beaker for Hotel Chocolat is the first time one of his porcelain creations has been made for a commercial design project.

The Dorset-based ceramicist is a graduate of the Royal College of Arts and has worked in hand-thrown clay pottery since 2006. Andrew’s work has been featured in galleries and exhibitions throughout the UK, Europe and the United States.

The textured surfaces in Andrew’s work are inspired by patterns found in the natural world, such as fossils, coral reefs and magnified plant forms. “Throwing clay isn’t as sexy as it seems in the movie Ghost,” he warns.
