Corine Adams, born and educated initially in the Netherlands, earning a degree in Graphic Design from Graphic Lyceum, Rotterdam and after gaining life and educational experience in Aruba and the United States, continued her art education, receiving a BFA and MAE from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She has lived on Cape Cod with her husband and 2 daughters since 1996.
Corine makes decorative and functional ceramic art and has a special interest in alternative firings such are saggar, raku and horsehair. The fish on display are raku fired. Raku is a type of low-firing process which involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials. Once the materials ignite, the containers are closed. This produces an intense reduction atmosphere which affects the colors in glazes and clay bodies.
