Andrew Cooke is an Northern Irish artist specializing in ceramics. Based in Co Down, Andrew has his workshop in the Castlereagh hills outside Belfast.
His love of motorcycles and cars from an early age has greatly influenced his work. The hotrod bug bit him after being given a box of old hotrod toys as a boy. He now has his own 1950 full kustom Chevy.
After school Andrew went on to become a highly skilled car body repair specialist but developed problems in his wrists and decided to move to something less physical. He completed a degree in fine and applied art (ceramics) and started his own workshop.
His workshop is based at an old stock car track his father ran in the 1970’s and he uses recycled waste sump oil to fire his home made furnace! Andrew uses a lot of recycled materials in his work including wood from old Belfast bars, things he finds in buildings around the stock car track, or whatever comes to hand.
Andrew has a wide range of products, from ceramic helmet sculptures to ceramic bodied Diddley bows and Tiki mugs. Please check out his galleries. He also commissions work. If you would like to contact him please use the button on the navigation bar above.
