DemonstRation by Billy Adams


Billy Adams – Presentation – Lunch – Demonstration

Saturday 23rd March, 2019 10.30 – 4pm
Cardiff Metropolitan University, Llandaff

Billy gave a very entertaining visual presentation, peppered with his Irish humour, tracing the development of his work, which has been continually influenced by the rugged landscape and architecture of his Irish homeland.  While demonstrating the making of a vessel, which was part thrown then hand built, Billy explained his use of different types of clay which he roughly layers to give his characteristic textures.  Billy would then use a number of glazes each fired to a different temperature to achieve his vivid yet natural  colours.
