Adama Sow is a ceramist who originates from Senegal (West Africa). This master on the potter's wheel has been working with clay for more than twenty years now. After finishing high school and already inspired by his big brother Alpha Sow who also was a ceramist, Adama decided to go the Fine Art School of Dakar (Senegal) where he obtained his diploma in ceramics in 1987. As a rookie in the art world, Mr. Sow astonished everyone by the quality of his first exhibition at the Historic Museum of Goree in Dakar in 1989. During the next five years, he worked in Soumbedioune Ceramics and in his workshop in the capital city of Senegal. Also, he offered classes to both adults and children. In 1995, his thirst for Art took him to Germany where he attended the ceramics school in Horgrenzhausen.
