Portrait of an Artisan< Wabi-Sabi Pottery

Artfest Kingston~ Booth Y20

Potter Adam Beales creates functional, handmade pottery under the name "Wabi-Sabi Pottery", which is inspired by the Japanese philosophy that celebrates the inherent beauty in hand made objects.
Originating from Gloucestershire UK, Adam began his pottery career over 8 years ago. His style combines traditional English craftsmanship with nods to various Eastern influences including his personal favorite, Tang Dynasty ceramics.
Working mainly in stoneware, Adam focuses on strong, functional forms decorated with layered glazes and simple handmade designs. Adam’s range includes lidded storage jars, vases, bowls, mugs and teapots.

What is unique about your work?

Adam's work focuses on strong form and function; continually "pushing" the clay to achieve desired forms: the bulbous volume of a storage jar, the refined curves of a bowl, and lightweight, well balanced teapots are just a few signature pieces.

What are you most excited about this year?

Adam has been developing some new finishes including copper reds and green ash glazes which will further enhance some of his larger showpieces as well as his "dribble-free" teapots and mugs, his most popular items!
