Adele Howitt – Ceramic Landscape


18 June to 3 September 2016

For Ceramic Landscape, artist Adele Howitt presents a new series of large ceramic sculptures – intricate, seemingly delicate, yet robust. Inspired by the anatomy of plants, this exhibition links nature and abstraction to form a new perspective on the living landscape. 

While resident artist at Naturalia in Sevilla, Spain (2012), Howitt developed an interest in pollen grains and a new understanding of the natural world around her. At the same time she also rediscovered her pottery skills, and began pushing the craft to exciting new limits. Combining this research with influences from the countryside and coast near her Humber home, Howitt has utilised her a strong technical skills to craft these beautiful and unique ceramic objects.

In the past Howitt’s artwork’s has been exhibited across Europe, including the Steninge Slott Cultural Centre in Sweden, VI Biennal de Ceramica del Vendrell in Barcelona, Spain, the Ceramica Multiplex at Kerameikon, Croatia, and various RHS Gardens including the Chelsea Flower Show.
