DYLAN BOWEN PLATTER
A wonderful and very large platter by Dylan Bowen
Slip decorated earthenware
Dylan Bowen lives and works in Oxfordshire making slip and earthenware. His work combines traditional and contemporary techniques and influences. Dylan aims to capture some of the fluidity and freedom of the making process in the finished work.
Dylan Bowen is essentially the action painter of British studio ceramics, bringing a new energy to the surface of clay with his rhythmical and highly powered pourings of slip. The son of the noted slipware potter Clive Bowen, Dylan trained at Camberwell College of Arts . Bowen keeps any control at arm’s length, putting more emphasis on spontaneity and gestural freedom. For Dylan, the making and decorating process blend together so that the spontaneity and energy invested in the creative process are embodied in the finished piece.
