Anthea Bowen - Studio Potter

Cornwall

For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for pots, loving the individual qualities and the imprint of style and energy that each potter leaves on their work.

I am inspired by the coastal scenery and beaches close to my studio in West Cornwall: A new idea is, more often than not, conceived at the beach … I love the soft lines of sea-worn rounded boulders, the textures of rock, the beautiful fine lines running through pebbles and how seaweed is left draped in flowing shapes by the receeding tide. Shiny water, mat rock, ripples in sand, dark against light, edges, textures … all these elements come together to form my next idea. I mostly hand build, either throwing and altering forms or working with slabs of clay. Each piece emerges slowly and ideas will evolve during the making process.

If you would like to have a virtual walk around my studio and to find out a bit more about my work, I invite you to contact me to set up a 1:1 video call… I look forward to sharing my work with you!

Stay safe and well.
