What little information that we’ve found for Matthew Adams is all related to his work for Sascha Brastoff. Research seems to also be hampered further by his rather common full name.

Chipman mentions him in the Brastoff entry and in the back of the book, but does not show any explicitly signed “Matthew Adams” items. But nearly all of the signed Adams pieces I’ve seen have been very similar to the “Alaska” line that Brastoff is known for. However, I don’t know enough about that line to say whether some were the same pieces in shape and painting style, or if they were ALL completely different.

They certainly do have the same sort of theme, and most people simply lump Brastoff and Adams together when describing the Alaska line. We like the designs, whatever the case. I believe Adams designed for Brastoff in the 50s-60s, and later branched off to form his own pottery, much like Marc Bellaire.
