Adrian secured an apprenticeship at Topaz Ceramics in Stoke-on-Trent after leaving school. It was here that he honed his skills throwing pots and learning about all other aspects of ceramic production. After four years he set up on his own business at Cotwall End Craft Centre specialising in hand-thrown pots.

A passion for sculpture later developed, leading to showing and selling at exhibitions nationwide. Latterly Adrian sells his unique work in galleries throughout the country. Each sculpture starts from a number of thrown pots made on a potter’s wheel, these are then left to go “leather-hard”. They are then cut and assembled to get the basic shape, giving a firm, hollow body which is an ideal base to start sculpting.

Clay is then added or removed, shaped and carved until it has come to life. The sculpture is then finished with oxides, raw materials, clay slips and his own particular glazes. Adrain tries to capture the very essence of the animal, spending long periods observing, photographing and sketching each creature before he starts to sculpt it. He is a regular at his local safari park where he takes hundreds of photos of the animal he intends to sculpt. He is fascinated by muscle structure and how the skin folds with movement, which he tries to capture in his work.
