Born and raised in Regina SK, Adam Lefebvre took interest in art at a young age. He started his BFA at the University of Regina and completed it in 2015 at the Alberta College of Art + Design, majoring in ceramics. With a focus on functional pottery and vessel-based sculpture, Adam’s work studies the vestigial – visible traces or remnants of something no longer present.
The term “vestige” is the underlying theme within my work. From sculpture to photography to utilitarian pottery, I create visible traces or remnants of something no longer present. Objects that have been left to weather and decay can gain intensely fascinating surfaces that only time and the elements can create. It is these qualities that I seek with atmospheric firing. Whether looking at an expansive vista at a roadside turnout or noticing an upturned, rusty nail in a fence, I have always found pleasure in observation. Ultimately, my efforts are towards creating objects that are visually captivating.
