Andrea Denniston, a transplant from Kansas, is now a full-time studio potter in Floyd, Virginia alongside her husband and fellow 16 Hands member, Seth Guzovsky. She received her MFA in Ceramics at Syracuse University, BFA at West Virginia University, and BA in Entrepreneurial Studies Business at Seton Hill University. Prior to beginning graduate studies, she worked as an apprentice for studio potter Silvie Granatelli. Andrea works primarily on the potter’s wheel with a grolleg porcelain clay. She creates functional pieces that she hopes will find a home in everyday life and daily conversation – objects that will add “pomp” to daily life.
