Michael and Christine Adcock's work integrates each artist's chosen medium-Michael's pottery and Christine's basketry-into an organic whole. Each hand-thrown or slab-built clay vessel is placed in a larger clay jar called a saggar before firing. Various combustible materials, including mineral oxides and salts, are packed into the space between the two vessels.
When the piece is fired, the resulting gasses and smoke create the range of tonalities on the clay surface. When the pots are cooled and removed from the kiln, fibers are glued, stitched, inlaid, and woven in.Michael and Christine have been collaborating for over 20 years, and have never ceased to be inspired by the possibilities of their craft. Their work is published and displayed in galleries, museums, and interior design show rooms through the USA, Canada, Europe, and Japan.
