Adam Chau

Adam Chau works primarily in ceramics and operates a studio in Connecticut. After receiving a BFA degree (MECA, 2010) in studio ceramics, he decided to pursue industrial ways of production by receiving a Masters in Design (SAIC, 2013). He has exhibited and lectured internationally with a wide publication list on his research into ceramic technology. In 2018, he was awarded the NCECA Emerging Artist Fellowship and in 2019 became a member of the International Academy of Ceramics. He is the Exhibitions Manager for New York State’s largest independent arts council, ArtsWestchester, and currently the Director of Exhibitions for NCECA.

Peter Olson

Peter Olson is a trained professional photographer, who over the past six years has explored new frontiers in the medium with his entrée to ceramics. He is inspired by museum collections and throngs of hurried pedestrians in NYC and other large metropoles. The repetition and rhyming of ritual, both daily and religious, act as a baseline for the bands of imagery that play like sheet music around his ceramic garnitures. The kaleidoscopic photo-collages wrap around the pieces completely, including the interiors, creating moments of surprise, and hint at narratives as the past and present melt into one another.
