Andrew Beckham (B.A., M.A.T. ’01)
Andrew sculpted a career by merging his three passions: history, pottery, and education. He teaches ceramics at Beaverton High School and owns Beckham Estate Vineyard, where he ferments Pinot Noir using ancient methods in handcrafted terracotta amphorae. He molds each vessel on a standard potter’s wheel, a process that takes two weeks. His 40 to 60 gallon jars weigh 250 pounds when wet. He allows three months for drying, and 40 hours for firing.
Andrew’s art is on display at the vineyard tasting room – stop by to view or purchase art during tasting room hours.
