Maggie’s work is represented in both private and Public Collections both in the UK and Internationally notable Prince Hirohito Japan Ambassador Yamazaki Japan, Frechen Museum Institute Statale D’Arte Castelli Biennale Collection Valluris France and in collections found in USA Canada,Australia ,New Zealand and Italy. Maggie’s work is referenced and included in publications notable in

Since 1975 onwards Maggie Andrews has presented at International and UK galleries which were during this period seen as venues at the fore-front of Ceramic Contemporary practice and as precursors to the present developments and opportunities within the discipline. She received an Arts Council Wales Fellowship in 1981 in which she developed and adopted a firing reduction process of Raku. The created surface qualities on the forms are reflective of the primeval world eruptive and in flux whilst retaining the intricacy and finesse characteristic of her porcelain work. Maggie relocated her studio at the Old Wool Barn Cowbridge in1984.This opportunity in establishing her new studio was through the vision of Mr. David John of Arthur John and Co.in creating studio workshops to encourage local artists and crafts people to work in Cowbridge in the converted Wool Barn.
