Adam says of his moon jars

‘My work uses a single pure jar form as a canvas to map my observations from an ongoing study of my surroundings. I incorporate stone and locally dug clay into my work to create a narrative, a unique sense of place. The unpredictable nature of each jar comes from the inclusions and their metamorphosis during firing’. Landscapes have inspired artists for generations but for me a landscape has to be felt. To depict it is always going to fall short. I was inspired by archaeological theories that the Menhirs of prehistory are a veneration of the landscapes that surrounds them. With my site-specific work I too am venerating the landscape.’

Adam was an invited artist at the 2019 British Ceramics Biennial at Stoke-on Trent.  He has exhibited at Frieze Art Fair, Collect at the Saatchi Gallery, The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and the National Museum in Cardiff, as well as diverse exhibitions around the globe .  He was awarded the Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales in 2017. Adam’s work is in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, Chatsworth House, the National Museum of Wales and The British Museum, amongst many others.

From ‘Fern Hill’ by Dylan Thomas:

‘Nothing I cared, in the lamb white days, that time would take me
Up to the swallow thronged loft by the shadow of my hand,
     In the moon that is always rising,
          Nor that riding to sleep
     I should hear him fly with the high fields
And wake to the farm forever fled from the childless land.
Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
          Time held me green and dying
     Though I sang in my chains like the sea.’
