Andrew Hazelden, Ceramicist, commissioned to create functional art for St Hugh’s College Chapel

Andrew Hazelden, a ceramicist who has been commissioned to create original and permanent functional art for the College Chapel in the form of a specially designed font bowl and ewer (pitcher), was a guest speaker at St Hugh’s College on Sunday 22 May.

Andrew studied ceramics at the Epsom School of Art and Design, and he has worked with renowned ceramicists Mary Wondrausch and Alan Caiger-Smith.  During his visit and address in the College Chapel, Andrew demonstrated his work live using a potter’s wheel.  He showed attendees several of his completed works made using techniques of tin glaze earthenware and reduction fired lustre during the effective demonstration, which included readings by children of related scriptures.

In addition to those in the audience from St Hugh’s College, more than twenty members of the public from the wider Oxfordshire community attended to hear Andrew’s talk.

The new font bowl and ewer, which is now in the planning stages, will be made from Andrew’s studio at Hewins Wood, Bradfield, Reading, over the course of coming months.  Andrew’s art, including other font bowls and ewers made for churches and chapels in a wide variety of locations, can be viewed on his website: andrew hazelden.
