Matthew J. Adams, Compulsion to Co-Exist

Column of stacked lacework ceramic modules on a step base

Matthew J. Adams
Matt Adams studied art at the University of Colorado, apprenticed at Moravian Pottery and Tile Works and then went on to receive an MFA in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design. Before moving to Telluride last December, Matthew lived in Taos, New Mexico, making art and teaching clay at the University of New Mexico for the past 15 years. Through his art, Matthew Adams desires to help the viewer discover something new by evoking the mysterious, but somehow strangely familiar, to draw the mind in direction it’s not used to. He enjoys exploring the boundless possibilities of form, while integrating rhythm, movement and balance. Matthew aspires to create lasting art that provides a captivating, tactile and poetic experience.
