upcoming workshop with Adam Feild – Nature Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay

Nature Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay

July 8-12, 2019

Tuition: $750

Maximum enrollment: 8

Open to all levels, basic wheel throwing skills recommended

In this 5-day workshop participants will work side-by-side with me in my Helena, Montana studio. The workshop is focused on porcelain. I will demonstrate a variety of wheel-thrown forms, my approach to trimming pottery, methods for carving intricate pattern on functional forms, as well as glazing and high firing in my reduction glaze kiln. From ancient Korean techniques, to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. They will learn new skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns in clay.  Generous discussions about studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas.  Workshop attendees will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice.

Contact ADAM to reserve your space or with any questions you might have.

a site 2 see friday: hidenseekah


Well today’s site to see isn’t so much a website as it is a user on instagram…but follow me for a minute and you’ll see why you need to check it out.

Adam Field (of Adam Field Pottery) came up with a brilliant idea. Its one of those ideas you have to just love because it’s not motivated by marketing or sales – it’s core goal is to build community. Simple. Adam figured that it would be great to figure out a way to build the clay community on the instagram platform. Already there are tons of amazing artists posting their work, their lives, behind the scenes in their studio, what they find inspiring in the world, and well….of course their beloved pets too. But how could we get more clay artists on instagram? How about offer them the chance to find and keep some amazing pots simply by being at NCECA this year and following a group of artists who have donated work. It’s super simple to play along. All you have to do is go to HIDENSEEKAH’s instagram page and follow all 36 potters under the “36 following” tab at the top right corner of the page. Once NCECA starts Adam will be hiding artwork around Houston for you to find. Clues to find each artist’s work will be posted on their own personal instagram feed (which is why you have to follow them all not just HIDENSEEKAH).

Here’s a list of the artists whose work you could be lucky enough to find and take home:

Daniel Anderson
Christa Assad
William Baker
HP Bloomer
Archie Bray
Kyle Carpenter
Benjamin Carter
Sunshine Cobb
Josh Copus

Ceramics Visiting Artist Workshop | ADAM FIELD

February 13 to 16

The ACAD Ceramics Program is pleased to present a workshop February 13th to 16th with Adam Field from Durango, Colorado. Field will share what he has learned over his 13 year studio career. Lectures and discussions will cover his Korean pottery apprenticeship, technical production methods, aesthetic considerations and the business side of a pottery practice. All are welcome to attend the public lecture and workshop demonstrations. Visiting Artist Talk | Stanford Perrott Lecture Theatre Wednesday, February 15 @ 2 p.m. Born and raised in Colorado, Adam Field earned his BA in Art from Fort Lewis College. For two years he immersed himself in the culturally rich art scene of the San Francisco Bay area, where he began his full time studio practice. From there, Adam relocated to Maui, where he established a thriving studio business. Adam spent most of 2008 in Icheon, South Korea, studying traditional Korean pottery techniques under 6th generation Onggi master Kim Il Mahn. Adam has recently established his studio in Durango, Colorado. His works are included in private collections internationally. Regarding his ceramic studio work, Adam states: I am fascinated with antique artifacts, the way they can speak of mastery of lost peoples, places, and cultures. This inspires me to create works that both radiate history and capture my own place and time. I work toward a clean aesthetic that celebrates the masterful simplicity of antique Far Eastern pottery, while retaining the modest utility of colonial American wares. The surface of my pottery is meticulously carved with intricate designs that borrow from nature and incorporate the human touch. Much of the carving on my work is informed by the pattern languages found in indigenous fiber art, suchas Hawaiian tapa, Incan cordage and Zulu basketry.
