Artists statement

Artists statement

"Dylan Bowen trained at Shebbear Pottery then Camberwell school of Art, graduating in 1991. He, in partnership with potter Jane Bowen, set up their present workshop in 2002.
Dylan makes individual pieces in slip decorated earthenware, the work is wheel thrown and altered or handbuilt. Slips are poured, trailed or brushed on, mainly black and white slips with some green, it is then fired to around 1080c. in an electric kiln usually with a clear or honey glaze.
Dylan is currently working on large platters, bottle shapes and taller forms, aiming to combine making and decorating metods to capture some of the spontenaity and energy of the creative process."
