Thanks.

I don't think 1998 is the correct date. They were living in France when I celebrated my 60th birthday with them in 1993 & I believe they had been there a few years by then!

Welcome Nammie.

I can't give a definite answer but elsewhere on this site under the Studio Pottery heading there is a Wye Pottery thread, which contains an obituary supplied to me by his daughter last April.

She had written that and it states, "on marriage in 1954, he settled in Wales opening the Wye Studio Pottery in 1956. For forty years, Adaš became part of the local scene."

Later she adds that "by his eighties kiln, wheel and clay became too cumbersome and he found expression with pastels and acrylics. Always drawn to France, Adaṥ and his wife decided to live there permanently and it was in Burgundy, living close to his two sons, that he died this March 6th."

Therefore to me it would seem that they had a property in France as well as Wales for a period but moved to France permanently in the late 1990s.

The date I gave came from a couple of sources, but could well be wrong.

As SP says he is said to have stopped potting in his 80's and he was born in 1917, so that would tie in with the date 1998.

Adam (Adaš) Dworski (1917-2011) set up the Wye Pottery in Clyro in 1956, and ran it until his retirement in 1997.
