About

Potter Adam Frew works and teaches from a former barn that has been transformed into a purpose-built studio, creating works in porcelain, including thrown functional and large one-off pots.

While studying at Belfast Art College, Adam spent time at the historic Winchcombe Pottery, which sparked a love for production pottery and joined Judy Makala in Finland. Upon graduating in 2004, he undertook a two-year apprenticeship with Lisa Hammond at her Greenwich based pottery, where he gained the experience and confidence to set out on his own.

After returning to Northern Ireland, Adam became a resident potter at Flowerfield Arts Centre for 12 years before moving to Aghadowey with his family, creating a larger studio space beside their home.

Adam creates clean, simple forms in his pottery that subtly show the makers' hand to imbue a sense of life in the work.

"I enjoy the spontaneity of throwing, the speed of production, and I seek to reflect this energy in my mark-making," he explains. 

"My marks are continually evolving; I am interested in contrasts; sharp lines, crayon scribbles, brush marks, sponged back sections.  It is this ongoing investigation that invigorates my making."
