Apart from working in the studio constantly and working his day job, Adrian enjoys Maine and New England’s beauty. From hiking and snowboarding to salt and fresh water fishing, he loves being outside and enjoying this beautiful Maine paradise. When he is not making pots, he is either happily outside, or relaxing in good company, generally with good food and drink.
