Anthea Bowen - Studio Potter


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.

Ideas for new pieces are conceived during walks along the coastline close to my studio in Cornwall.  I either hand build, working with slabs or coils of earthenware clay or create forms by throwing and altering . Each piece emerges slowly and ideas will evolve during the making process.

Evoking the Cornish coast within my ceramics drives me into the studio to explore the shapes, textures, colour and energy of my coastal environment. Making is a meditation for me and while it is wonderfully easy to get lost in the process, I endeavour to recreate these initial feelings of serenity or energy within the finished work, bringing these qualities to the viewer.
