Craft NI Studio Interview: Adam Frew
Living and working in the beautiful countryside of north Antrim, Adam Frew is a potter working in porcelain creating a popular range of functional ware
and large one-off pots.
He studied at Belfast Art College but spent time at the historic Winchcombe Pottery learning about production pottery, and after a two year apprenticeship with Lisa Hammond at her Greenwich based pottery he established his own practice in Northern Ireland. Based at Flowerfield Arts Centre for 12 years he then moved his practice and family to Aghadowey in Co.Derry, and, partly financed by a crowd-funding campaign, he turned an old barn into a purpose-built studio from where he now works and teaches. His online shop sells out quickly though!
This is the third of Craft NI's four August Craft Month 2020 studio films, giving insights into the varied careers and work of just a few of Northern Ireland's many talented contemporary crafts people.
