Rowena Brown’s sculptural ceramics focus on architectural forms, which are coloured with slips, part-glazed, and then earthenware or raku fired. She draws inspiration from images of weather worn and derelict structures, particularly on the Hebridean islands. Much of her work is evocative of abandonment, but when grouped together her pieces form their own unique community of works.
Rowena Brown gained a BA in Design from St Martin's School of Art, London, and then spent two years living in California where she studied the process of raku-firing. On her return to the UK she took a Masters Degree in Fine Art Ceramics at the University of Leeds. She now works from her studio in the Hebrides, Scotland. Rowena has exhibited in California, London and all around the UK and her work has been featured in The Telegraph, The Guardian, Ceramic Review, House and Garden, Oh Comely, Coast, and Homes and Gardens.
