Adele Howitt, co-founder and director of Eleven Gallery & Studio, is a ceramic artist who works primarily with clay and is known for creating art within the public realm.
“I am fascinated by the natural world, geology, history and science. The relevance of pattern and form found in landscape are concepts that I investigate, including microscopic landscapes and pollen grains. These ideas manifest as ceramic sculpture. Made in clay and fired to stoneware temperatures, the work is constructed intricately. I begin with press moulding and coil building, apply repeated templates of clay, and use traditional pottery flower making.”
Adele has exhibited work internationally and nationally with pieces now in museum collections. Currently, Adele is lead artist for the ‘Heritage on the High Street’ project – set up to innovate the world famous Hornsea Pottery into the high street setting. The trail will manifest in permanent installations around the town of Hornsea, creating artwork in ceramic, brick, terrazzo, and metal. The Heritage on the High Street project is being led by a Steering Group of Hornsea & Area Renaissance Partnership members (HARP), ERYC Members, Town Councillors, and the Civic Society.
