Pure jar forms with geological inclusions

By adding some of the essential and actual elements of the natural landscape to his work, Adam shows how his practice is embedded in a study of his surroundings.  He sources local materials and uses them unrefined to show his personal relationship with the landscape.

The shapes he throws are based on Moon Jars, a Korean form from the Choson Dynasty which were originally made from plain white porcelain.  This pure jar form has become his ‘canvas’, into which he incorporates selected sources of local materials such as clays, rocks and seaweed.
