Rowena’s inspiration comes from media images showing the aftermath of environmental and manmade disruption, and also from weather-worn and derelict structures in the Scottish landscape.
Her handmade ceramic buildings are distinguished by their individual surface texture, marks and features. The forms are part-glazed, then raku or stoneware fired. Each of the pieces has its own character. They can be seen as isolated forms, or as part of a group evoking human interaction and community.
Rowena has a BA in Fashion Design from St. Martins School of Art in London, an MA in Fine Art from the University of Leeds and has exhibited work in California and within the UK.
In 2015 Rowena was awarded best newcomer at Ceramic Art London, her work was selected by Ceramic Review.
