Adam Buick was born in Newport, Gwent in1978. He studied at Lampeter University, West Wales School of Art and with the Crafts Council of Ireland.  He now lives and works in Pembrokeshire.

His work uses a single pure jar form as a canvas to map his observations from an ongoing study of his surroundings. Adam incorporates stone and locally dug clay into his work to create a narrative, one that conveys a unique sense of place.

“Adam Buick has imposed on himself the strict discipline of the simplest and purest of geometric forms. Don’t expect his spheres of fired clay to be standoffish or predictable though. Yes Adam makes white porcelain moon jars as chaste in their beauty as the old Korean dal-hang-a-ri vessels that first inspired him.”
