About Tim Rowan

From a kiln in the woods of upstate New York, Tim Rowan sculpts geode-like ceramic vessels that are both dense and curvilinear. His apprenticeship to Japanese artist Ryuichi Kazurezaki instilled a deep respect for traditional Japanese design, evident in the firing and flame markings of his work. Rowan draws inspiration from both landscapes and man-made objects, and was awarded the prestigious Janet Mansfield Ceramic Award in 2013.
