Andrea Belanger is a Providence, Rhode Island based potter specializing in functional, wheel-thrown ceramics. Belanger sought out the craft as a healthy distraction from the anxiety that ensued following her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in 2017. She’s happy to report that her beautiful mother is healthy, well and the proud owner of many of her first and ugliest pots!
Belanger’s studies in pottery have been guided by the mentorship of Dew Claw Studio owner, John Mitchell. Inspiration and love of John’s work can be seen in Belanger’s use of expressive Tiki or Polynesian themes as well as in her attention to forms and shapes, particularly in the throwing of bowls. Through the pressing, carving and attaching of clay Belanger is able to make her functional forms come to life and loves the idea that a piece’s owner might decide which cup to enjoy their morning coffee out of based on the mood its expression might evoke.
Belanger’s pots are meant to be enjoyed and all are food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
