Adele Howitt is based in The East Riding of Yorkshire, England UK. Craft and design remain central to the artist’s practice. Having gained a Distinction for her MA at the UCE, Birmingham, Adele’s line of research continues to celebrate current issues, context and site specific information in her research-driven collaborations. Using traditional materials and techniques for the majority of her public works – hand made tiles, slip casting, ceramic transfer, concrete and tiles – Adele will execute her brief with a purpose that recognises the importance of the wider view of society. Adele Howitt initially trained at the Chelsea School of Art, gaining a BA(hons) in Public Art and Design, and in ceramics at the Guildhall University, London.
Her subsequent work has taken her into the public realm with professionals and people of all ages; she has collaborated with Ideal Standard Bathroom Factory (American Companies) Kingston upon Hull (UK), Groundwork West London, the Commonwealth Institute, Kensington, Arts for the Cultural Advancement through the Visual Arts (ACAVA) London, Staffordshire Moorlands Public Art Programme, and Artlink Exchange, Hull.
Adele will be exhibiting at the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery, in 2009

BEAM have commissioned me to develop permanent artworks for a new health centre in Barnsley, and to engage with the community to generate ideas for artwork. I've created a blog that documents this process - if you have time, have a look and post what you think!

I welcome invitations for demonstrations, workshops and residencies. I have a strong experience of working with people, of all abilities and experience, from age of 5 and upwards. Experience of collaborations with other artists on a range of publicised events. I work to commission, although I usually exhibit every year. I have considerable experience and appreciation of working with creative landscapers to combine public/spaces with contemporary art. (Recent examples are Alan Sargeant; Jo Russell (Feng Shui consultant) at Chelsea Flower Show 2000 and Mode 2000.)
