A sense of energy

  • • Adam balances spontaneity with precision
  • • He creates functional and one-off forms
  • • He used crowd funding to start his workshop

Adam Frew studied ceramics at Belfast Art College, graduating with a BA Fine and Applied Arts. During his studies he spent time working with Winchcombe Pottery, and then for Judy Kuitunen. This time opened his eyes to the realities of the daily routine of making pots. Through this experience he came to love humble small batch production, and made the decision to pursue this as a career path. After university he had the opportunity to be Lisa Hammond’s apprentice. This training, over two years, was invaluable to refine the skills and knowledge he now uses every day to create his pieces. He combines skills at the wheel with an eye for abstraction and mark making.
