Artist Megan AdamsArtist: Megan Adams

Megan Adams hails from Wyoming, USA and has been a long-time resident of London, UK. During her previous career in film production, she got acquainted with ceramics via evening classes and went on to complete a ceramics degree. While studying, she was encouraged to enter the V&A’s ‘Inspired By’ competition and has since exhibited twice at the V&A museum. She was also selected as a licentiate with the Society of Designer Craftsman culminating in a show at the Chelsea College of Art.

Most of Megan’s work draws upon historical and mythological iconographies, re-interpreting the allegories behind famous tales, and representing them in sculptural form. She explores humankind’s relationships with those who share our world and warns against taking these relationships for granted.
