Meet Andrew Sankowski of Mossrock Studio & Fine Art Gallery in Spring

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Sankowski.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I needed a place to produce my work and a venue to show my work and the works of other artists.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been a good ride with a steady stream of loyal customers and a few good commissioned pieces to help the cash flow.

Please tell us about Mossrock Studio & Fine Art Gallery.
I break the business down to 2 parts: (1) the ceramic which includes the classes I teach and my work, and the gallery which includes my work and the work of other artists in painting, sculpture, fiber, jewelry, etc.

I specialize in one of a kind pieces showing exquisite glazing be it functional everyday pieces, sculptural including bonsai pots.

What sets my company apart from others on the gallery end is the fact that I open the gallery to new and never shown talent as well as established artists. The ceramic teaching side brings in students that continue to take classes due to the small size of the classes, the generosity of time and equipment shared, and the knowledge gained to continue to produce better work.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Always need more space.

      Andy was always creative, giving and seeing venues before they were even thought off. His artistic ability started at a young age and continued to manifest itself in his drawings and his jewelry design. Andy is my brother and I always tell him that he learned everything he knows from me!!!! In our growing up years, Andy always had a keen sense of color and his vision of looking at a specific object and seeing what it could be turned into always amazed me. His kindness, patience, generosity and his love of helping can be seen in the pottery he makes and displays. He was always creative, giving and helping others. His talent and his creativity in color and style of objects is out of this world. His gallery shows his true personality in the many different facets of art that he displays. Thank you for this article.

    Andy is a genius! He creates miracles with his own work, does a fantastic job teaching others, and has a wonderful gallery where he showcases the work of other artists as well as his own. And he makes the entire process loads of fun!
