Sharon Adams makes narrative objects mainly in metal (silver and steel) with additional elements of wood and textiles.
Sharon Adams tells stories through crafted objects. Deeply rooted in the farming landscape, her practice is directed by an intuitive response to the local and her emerging relationship to her homeplace. Seeking out points of connection with its lines and surfaces, textures and patterns she produces objects and drawings informed by a life-long relationship with a landscape that is both familiar and ever-changing.
Previous work includes interpretations of tools and of land & weather measurements. In 2018 she started to make direct explorations of her connection to the townland where her family has farmed for five generations, and this new body of work responds specifically to the area that lies within the horizon seen from her home at Frocess Yard.
Sharon Adams also coaches artists and makers as Herding Fish.
My home and studio is at Frocess Yard near Ballymena.
I occasionally host exhibitions and open studios, details of which can be found via my mailing list and/or social media.
Selected pieces available from the Craft NI Gallery.
