Adele Howitt is a designer and ceramicist with a portfolio of architectural and public realm art. Her studio ceramics explore the wider concept of the living landscape; research into the genus of plants to reveal their pollen grains combined with sketches of meadows to distil the movement of nature, are developed into three-dimensional form.
Adele’s methods of construction include slab work, throwing, hand-building, sprig and press moulds combined to create intricate sculptures. She explores and develops a restricted palette of glazes and applies these to red, black, or buff clay, to create a range of soft, matt hues.
Since 2009, Adele has directed the Studio Eleven Gallery & Workshop, which she set up to provide a much-needed platform & fully furnished workspace for contemporary craft in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Based in Humber Street, Fruitmarket, Hull, Adele curates and directs the enterprise from her first floor studio.
