Rowan's interest in ceramics arose as a pre-school child, having a handy supply of clay in her parents garden. The opportunity to take ceramics as an exam subject at school introduced her to throwing. Both hand building and throwing have continued into adult life with various training courses adding new ideas and a greater depth of knowledge.
Rowan now divides her time between hand built animalss in stoneware, making clay masters for casting in bronze resin, throwing functional stoneware and a range of bowls, bottles, jugs etc., in porcelain agate.
Inspiration is drawn from a life time of observing animals and from the constantly changing scenery of the Cornish countryside.
