Adam Buick studied Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Wales before embarking on a Ceramics Design and Skills course in Ireland in 2004. He uses the Moon Jar form as a canvas to map observations from an ongoing study of his surroundings, incorporating stone and locally dug clay into the work to create a narrative that conveys a unique sense of place. The use of local materials is integral to his work, reflecting a personal relationship with landscape, the materials within it and his past experiences from where materials were collected.
His work is in a number of public collections including the Devonshire Collection and the National Museum Cardiff.
