About Anthea Bowen
'I love connecting with nature and being outside is, now more than ever, a salve for the soul. Ideas for new pieces are conceived during walks along the coastline close to my studio in Cornwall.
'I love the soft lines and the positive and negative space created by the juxtaposition of sea-worn rounded boulders, the textures of the rock, the beautiful fine lines running through pebbles, how seaweed is left draped in flowing shapes by the receding tide, shiny water, matt rock, ripples in sand, dark against light, edges, textures ... all these elements come together to inspire new collections of work.Evoking the Cornish coast within my ceramics drives me into the studio to explore the shapes, textures, colour and energy of my coastal environment.
'Making is a meditation for me and while it is wonderfully easy to get lost in the process, I endeavour to recreate these initial feelings of serenity or energy within the finished work, bringing these qualities to the viewer.I love to then return to the beach with the completed pot, to photograph the piece within the environment that inspired it, bringing the creative process full circle.'
