The form and function of Clive Bowen’s work can be traced back to centuries-old pots such as English medieval jugs and early Japanese Tamba-tachikui ware.
Clive Bowen was born in Cardiff in 1943. He studied painting and etching before taking up a pottery apprenticeship with Michael Leach at Yelland Pottery in North Devon from 1965 until 1969. He has been making wood-fired earthenware at Shebbear Pottery since 1971. His pots are made using the local Fremington clay, a red earthenware clay which has been in use for centuries for traditional North Devon wares. Most are wheel thrown.
