Ceramic Landscape is a series of intricate, seemingly delicate, yet robust sculptures. The research initially began while Adele was a resident artist at Naturalia in Sevilla in 2012. Here, she researched pollen grains at Cordorba University and developed a new understanding of a living landscape.
“Looking at the grains under the microscope, I started to think more about living landscapes and natural patterns,” she says. “I start off with a drawing and then make that into a 3D form or sketch, then work on the scale.”
Coupled with her re-discovery of pottery skills whilst later researching the Mexborough and Dearne Valley Potteries (e.g. Rockingham), this research began to inform a new way of working in ceramics and pushing clay material to its’ technological boundaries. Adele links nature with imagination and abstraction in landscape formations, designed to stimulate the viewer.
