Creative Wales Award: Adam Buick

adambuickcwa

Adam Buick says  ”I am delighted to be a recipient of a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales. Awards of up to £25,000 are intended to give space and time for an artist who’s already had career achievements, to undertake creative experimentation and research to inform their future practice, but not necessarily to deliver defined and predetermined outcomes.

My artistic vision is to make work that embodies the landscape that inspires me. I use a single pure jar form as a canvas to map my observations from an ongoing study of my surroundings. Through the use of gathered materials in the ceramic process and through acts carried out within the landscape I hope to create a narrative, one that conveys a unique sense of place.

I want to bring greater depth, understanding and meaning to every piece I make. To explore the themes that have informed my work to date and to develop them further.

During 2017 I intend to spend time in the landscape making site specific clay based works. Bring those experiences and materials from the earth back into the studio to develop new surfaces and glazes. I will be visiting fellow artists in their studios, conversing with them and other arts professionals about themes that inform my work. I hope to make a trip to Korea to visit traditional Moon Jar makers. It is going to be such a great opportunity to take time away from my busy schedule to develop ideas that have been in my head for some time.”
