The Hinterwater Series was created within a year. This time period included research and development of around 3 months. Each large piece, Hinterwater I, II, III, were made and glazed over a 6 month period.
The beautifully sculptured pieces in white, dark cherry and blue are part of her Hinterwater Project, inspired by a waterside setting, the Aire and Calder Navigation canal. A particular inspiration for her new collection is the recent emergence of new wild flower and grass habitats along the old post industrial canal and river route as nature reclaims what was lost during industrialisation. Based in Yorkshire, Adele finds this particularly poignant and inspiring. ‘The melancholy feel of the canal’s faded industrial history around East Yorkshire,’ she says with feeling, ‘is now being brightened by an explosion of natural wildlife. My new work aims to capture both the industrial past and allude to the contemporary globalisation which has led to its next environmental phase’.

Adele Howitt is an artist and maker of ceramics. She predominately works in clay to investigate the notions of the living landscape, abstraction, pollen grains, and natural patterns. Slab work is twisted and turned to add detailed relief utilising the traditional pottery techniques discovered whilst investigating the South Yorkshire Potteries, for example, Rockingham. For Adele, clay is a sculptural medium, opposing the tradition of using it as a technical medium or an exploration of the vessel. Techniques include, drawing, hand building, coil / slab building, hand-thrown elements, mould making, slip casting, extruded clay, printing and glazing.
Artwork has been exhibited across Europe including, the Steninge Slott Cultural Centre, Stockholm, Sweden, VI Biennal de Ceramica del Vendrell Barcelona Spain, Ceramica Multiplex at Kerameikon Croatia, The London Design Fair, various RHS Gardens including Chelsea Flower Show, and the British Ceramics Biennial 2017. Seedpod White is selected for the International Taiwan Biennale 2016 at the Yingge Ceramics Museum near Teipei. Her ceramics can be found in Museum Collections in Teipei, Barnsley, Croatia and various arts in health spaces.
Adele’s studio practice includes a range of designed works for the public realm; recently the town – wide trail entitled Potter About Hornsea, East Yorkshire. With artwork on roundabouts, parks, and pavements, the works are inspired by and celebrate the world renowned Hornsea Pottery.
