Andrew Ludwig (he/him)
Ceramic Artist

​Andrew Ludwig grew up in St. Louis, but has spent the better part of a decade here in Columbia. He got his start in clay here at Access Arts in 2021, and immediately fell in love with the medium. Andrew is excited to take the next step as a potter with the organization where his journey began! His functional ware is characterized by geometric forms and contrasting colors, while decorative pieces often feature the chaos and spontaneity of raku.

Chance Taylor (he/him)
Ceramic Artist

Chance Taylor is a ceramicist and educator who grew up in Fargo, North Dakota. He graduated with a BFA (2018) in ceramics from North Dakota State University and received his MFA (2023) from the University of Missouri, Columbia. Taylor’s work is concerned with the subtle, unobtrusive beauty that emerges from the thoughtful confluence of contrasting energies. His work combines the rough with the refined, the organic with the architectonic, and the stable with the precarious. Within his practice, Taylor explores the interplay between intuition and analysis – allowing space for both intention and emergence.

Taylor has displayed his work across the nation and participated in many juried and invitational exhibitions. Most recently, he received a purchase award in the 30th annual Strictly Functional Pottery National, participated in a two-person exhibition with his studio mate Erin Drake at the Montminy Gallery in Columbia, Mo, and completed his MFA thesis exhibition Conglomerate at the George Caleb Bingham Gallery in Columbia, MO.
