On the evening of Friday 25 November, DEA EAST will be hosting the opening of Araceli Adams' new exhibition that celebrates Australia's marine biodiversity.

There will be over 40 handmade and painted platters that will make you fall in love with our oceans and curious to learn more about the creatures that inhabit them. 

All the platters will be hung en masse on a blue wall at DEA East, creating a colourful and striking display.

Araceli will be in attendance Friday night and Saturday morning.

All work from this exhibition will be released online at 10am on Sunday.

Sydney-based Araceli, whose work has been featured in The World of Interiors, Home Beautiful, Gourmet Traveller and The Journal of Australian Ceramics,  makes functional ceramics through her studio name Casa Adams Fine Wares. The handmade and painted pieces are inspired by Australia's rich biodiversity.

Over the last few years, Araceli has designed dozens of Australian fish, crustacean and cephalopod platters. For the first time, the entire collection of over 40 platters will be shown in one location.

The show will feature one of each design produced by Casa Adams, with the aim to elicit a sense of wonder and appreciation of our incredible Australian marine environment, which needs our help more than ever.


Born in Spain, and having lived and studied all over the world, @araceli_adams now produces work under the Casa Adams Fine Wares name, in a small studio in Dulwich Hill, Sydney.

The studio’s designs are inspired by Australia’s rich biodiversity, with the aim to recreate the wonder and curiosity felt by naturalists during the Age of Discovery. With a strong sustainability ethos, she contributes to Carbon Positive Australia by planting a native tree or shrub in Australia for each piece sold.
