Andrea Walsh is an artist based in Edinburgh. She studied fine art before completing a masters degree in glass at ECA, and set up her studio in 2005. Andrea's work is an exploration of the box and vessel form, using a range of materials including ceramics, glass and metal, to create exquisitely crafted, timeless and unique pieces. Looking at ideas of containment, materiality, preciousness and value, she creates considered and tactile objects that are intimate in scale and intrigue the viewer to contemplate, hold and cherish.
Her research continues, developing a body of work that is increasingly refined, and is attracting critical acclaim from curators and academics. Andrea exhibits regularly in the UK and internationally, and her work is included in private and public collections worldwide, these include the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh.
