Andrew ‘Augusta’ Smith is a multimedia artist and designer living and working in Phoenix, Arizona out of the HANDSEYESMIND Studio. Native to Edgefield County, South Carolina, Augusta has a rich background in traditional methods of ceramic design and production that allows him to work in many areas of the trade. A graduate of ASU in Biomedical Engineering and Ceramic Art, Augusta’s cross disciplinary approach brings together deeply involved research and intuitive forms to create lasting experiences and timeless designs. Focused on organically derived surfaces on functional wares, Augusta fires primarily in atmospheric kilns, in which the atmosphere of the kiln contributes directly to the surface. In addition to this personal body of work, Augusta makes tablewares for some of the top restaurants in Arizona, and is known for his collaborative bodies of work with artists of different disciplines.
