About the Artist

Peter Bowen Art and Ceramics

As long as I can remember I have always enjoyed drawing and painting and was encouraged by my father to draw and learn about watercolour.

At school by my art teacher John Stops, RWA a member of the Royal Academy encouraged me to experiment with painting techniques. John was a great influence and insisted that I pursue graphic design as a career.

I studied art and design at the former West of England College of Art in Bristol and embarked on a career as a graphic designer and had the good fortune to live and work in Canada for over 30 years alongside a wide range of illustrators and commercial artists including James McConnell a watercolour artist from Donegal.

As an artist and ceramicist, I live in the country near the beautiful Cathedral City of Wells in Somerset. My unique style of painting and ceramics have earned me an international reputation with much of my original work in private collections in Canada, the United States, Australia, Germany and Great Britain.

Ceramics and Art have always played an important part in my artistic development and I continue to explore new creative opportunities.

I have experimented with different forms and methods of firing including Raku and enjoy the unexpected results. However I am still drawn back to the joy of creating dimensional and functional products like butter dishes, sugar bowls, cream jugs and clocks.
