In 2008, Adam completed a two year placement at Flowerfield Arts Centre on Craft NI’s making it programme for craft business development. After the programme he remained at the centre where he continues to develop his trademark one-off pots and functional works in porcelain.
His work centres on the potters wheel. Traditional eastern forms inspire him, but spontaneity as a means of personal expression is key to his work. The exuberant action of throwing is enhanced by a continued experimentation through process, form and colour. Mark making is intuitive, sometimes relating to the form, or process of making, sometimes it’s part of a personal narrative.
He regularly exhibits throughout the UK and Ireland. His work is held in public collections at Mungyeoung Ceramic Museum, South Korea, the Arts Council on Northern Ireland, The law Society of Northern Ireland and the University of Ulster, Belfast.
