Clive Bowen | Viewing Room
British, 1943 - present
Born in Cardiff in 1943, Bowen studied painting and etching at Cardiff Art School before becoming apprenticed to Michael Leach in 1965. In 1971 he bought a property on the North Devon coast. Bowen converted the outbuildings into his workshop, and in 1976 built a double chambered wood kiln, with a capacity of over 400 cu. ft. holding over 1000 pots.

Bowen’s pots add colour, bringing sunshine to our grey days, whether a honey pot on a kitchen worktop, a medieval jug full of flowers on a windowsill or a tall bottle standing in the corner of a room. Having exhibited all over Great Britain, Bowen has also shown in Israel, Denmark and South America and has had several sell out shows in Japan. His work is held in public collections throughout the UK and abroad.
