Adam Ross

Adam Ross studied Ceramic design at the Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2009. Relocating to London in 2015, he now makes tableware and sculpture from his studio in Wood Green. 

"Evidence of process is an important characteristic for me in handmade ceramics. I like to look at an object and visualise the maker and the steps taken to produce the work. This idea, along with my love of traditional handmade pots and the techniques used to produce them are the combined inspiration for my tableware. The work is thrown, then faceted vertically, and cut through horizontally whilst still attached to the wheel. With the wheel still spinning, I carefully begin to open the up the pot from the inside, allowing each section to twist and move independently, leaving every piece unique".
