About Craig Fowler
Born and raised on the West Coast of Scotland Craig changed career half way through life due to a life changing illness. In a real case of silver linings, this led to his first explorations into art and the field of ceramics. He works predominantly in stoneware and now crafts mostly by throwing yet often still incorporate elements of handbuilding, deconstruction/reconstruction or by accentuating the distortions in his faceted vessels. Much of his work is functional vessels but often these begin to be pushed into more challenging less practical work.
His work is focussed on form and surface. Throwing is so dynamic yet also encompasses the serene; this was often his experience of his childhood on the western coast of Scotland; a mix of dynamism and serenity. That is what he wants to try to capture this in his work so it covers everything from quiet, discreet more traditional forms to wildly energetic work that really captures the movement of the process and to take a snapshot of time frozen in clay. Many of his more ‘kinetic’ pieces are highly textured with deliberately distorted forms and his more traditional work has a gentler energy with some of the same linear marks but in a much more paired-back, softer, more accessible way. He tries to let the work just be.
He is currently a tutor and Course Leader for Ceramics at Westminster Adult Education Services in Central London
