Artist Talk By Ceramicist Adam Field

When Montana ceramicist Adam Field is in town for a workshop sponsored by Louisville Clay, he will give a talk that’s free and open to the public. Field is known for his skilled, carved patterns on large wheel-thrown pottery. “I am fascinated with antique artifacts, the way they can speak of mastery of lost peoples, places, and cultures,” said Field. “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 pattern languages found in indigenous fiber art, such as Hawaiian tapa, Incan cordage, and Zulu basketry.”
