Clive Bowen at 70

Posted on

The Scottish Gallery

06 Mar 2013 - 30 Mar 2013

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to host Clive Bowen’s second solo show which also celebrates his 70th Birthday.Clive Bowen was born in Cardiff in 1943. He studied painting and etching at Cardiff Art School before taking up an apprenticeship with Michael Leach at Yelland Pottery in North Devon from 1965 until 1969. In 1971 he bought a small agricultural property at Shebbear, near Holsworthy in North Devon and set up a workshop in the former farm outhouses where he still continues to work today. His pots are made in the local Fremington clay, a red earthenware clay in use for centuries for traditional North Devon wares.

"I want my pots to be used, not merely to sit in isolation on a shelf. I want them to be used to enhance the enjoyment of everyday life and of good food."

We are thrilled to announce that Clive will be in The Gallery at the exhibition opening and happy to talk about his work.
