Bev Andrews lives in Alexandria, Va. She began a second career as a ceramic artist 10 years ago.

She enjoys experimenting with different forms and shapes whether thrown on the wheel, hand built or a combination of both. Lidded vessels are a favorite form, and she likes to create unusual lids, handles, and stands to add character. She gains inspiration from nature and her travels. The Zen concept of “shibui” -- simple, unaffected beauty in harmony with nature -- guides her work. Her goal is to create unique pieces that have simplicity and grace. For several years, she has been a practicing student of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, a Japanese form of flower arranging, and she designs and makes containers for use in these arrangements.

Although she is most recognized for her dramatic black and white raku vessels, she fires half of her work in wood or gas kilns.

Her prices range from $50 to $250.
