About Adam Hughes

'I am a potter from North Shropshire and I make a mix of functional ware and more sculptural work from my small studio using a gas reduction kiln and a wood firing kiln.


'I have always lived in the countryside and my work reflects the world around me. My local sandstone quarry was abandoned hundreds of years ago and nature has firmly taken it back. I grew up around it and now It is one of my favourite places to walk and explore with my young family. It is wonderful to see the way that nature returns to these structures, to see the moss and plant life take back the worked surfaces. I like to explore the textural differences between the natural sandstone and the man-made surfaces. I would like to think that I can replicate this in some small way.


'<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->I try to use local materials as often as I can and currently use a blend of Shropshire and Staffordshire clay in the body of my pots. I fire in my gas kiln and whenever possible in a wood fired kiln. The different types of firing give completely different qualities to individual pieces and I really enjoy exploring these.'
