Adele makes a range of functional porcelain objects that are inspired by simplicity of form, clean lines, and bright colour. She strives to make useful, simple objects that people can enjoy and use everyday. The forms are slip cast using liquid porcelain, and once dried and finished, are painted with layers of coloured slips to create vivid surfaces. The coloured clay is left unglazed, enhancing its tactile quality and is contrasted with shiny glazed surfaces. The pieces are fine and light but also robust and durable.
Adele works from her studio at her home in Mahon Bridge, County Waterford. You can browse Adele’s ceramics here and find out more about her work on her website, https://adelestanley.com/about/
