Andrew Hill

Andrew Hill is a fine artist specialising in ceramic sculptural human forms, focussing on emotional responses and interactions which encourages the observer to imagine past, present and future conversations between the figures and imagined others. The meanings behind the sculptures can be perceived to have both dark and light connotations, often containing fun, love, anxiety, sexual tension, anger, but always drama within their sensitive expressions, form and posture.


From a very young age, Hill studied ceramics at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, Surrey, UK.  In the 1990’s he worked at Wrecclesham Pottery, Farnham, under the guidance of Phillip Harris, 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 which 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.
