Tim Rowan (b.1967) is a ceramic artist that resides in New York. His sculptural work has been featured in prestige galleries across the USA and he has participated as a resident artist at Pewabic Pottery and The Archie Bray Foundation. His pieces are investigations of process and form. He uses clays from his surrounding New York area, grounding him environmentally in a specific place and time. The final transformation - from clay to cultural artifact - culminates in the 7-day woodfiring. Tim's forms are simple, subtle and restrained. The pieces respectfully reference traditions of the past while firmly planting themselves in contemporary ceramics. Tim did an apprenticeship in Bizen Japan for two years with Ryuichi Kakurezaki before receiving his MFA in 1999. He has exhibited internationally in England and Japan, as well as taught ceramics at a variety of universities.
