With a delicate style of throwing, poured and dipped glazing techniques, Kirsty has created a unique collection of domestic and studio porcelain. Each piece contains an element of spontaneity, with refined throwing lines combined with the incidental marks and story of the glazing technique.

‘My main inspiration and methods of working were developed whilst living and working in Japan. I became particularly inspired by the Oribe style of glazing and this has influenced all my subsequent work. ”Kirsty Adams Ceramics is included in the collectors handbook of British Studio Potters’ Marks and now works from her studio in Newcastle upon Tyne. Kirsty has been selected by the Crafts Council/National Trust to produce a bespoke collection for the National Trust for 2018-19.
