Original handmade ceramics by Kirsty Adams at The Biscuit Factory.

Kirsty Adams

Kirsty Adams is a Newcastle-based ceramic artist. She originally trained at Brighton Art College and then on the potters’ wheel in Japan. She has developed a personal approach to throwing on the wheel using porcelain clay, to produce unique pieces for the home.

Kirsty Adams' work is both functional and holds aesthetic meaning, retaining the spontaneity and delicacy intrinsic to making on the potters’ wheel. A Japanese comb tool is used to create and enhance the throwing lines. The high gloss glaze references the porcelain in its wet state, while the bronze, oxide or copper rim detail brings individuality to each piece. 

Kirsty recently won a Crafts Council opportunity to design a bespoke range for the National Trust's Artisan and Craft Collection. In addition to being represented on the Crafts Council Makers Directory, Kirsty is a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
