Adrian Bates

In all the work I make I explore flowing lines and transitional surfaces. This sprang from an interest in typography and gesture, and both are captured in the forms I am drawn to or have developed. Playing with scale also interests me – the way that proportion and subtlety are expressed differently at different sizes and I enjoy the versatility and discipline of working with clay, offering as it does the freedom to play with form, line, texture and colour.

I make stoneware sculptural pieces for home and garden. They are thrown and handbuilt from stoneware clays and porcelain. Some are simply glazed to emphasise the form, others are unglazed. All are biscuit fired to 970oC, then fettled, glazed and high fired to 1260oC.
