Contemporary Ceramic Artist Rowena Gilbert

Rowena’s ceramic work is above all else, a celebration of the natural world informed by her daily observations, travels and life in her coastal hometown. Her focus is exploring the language of abstraction to evoke the elemental power and ever-shifting dynamism of nature, communicating not through narrative and figurative forms, but through mood and momentum.

Rowena’s ceramics have featured in Sussex Life, Vogue, The World of Interiors, Elle Decoration Magazines and in The Guardian, The Times and The Metro Newspapers.

Her work has a distinctive and wholly original contemporary style. Using additions of metal oxides and stains, the coloured clay layers are brushed on or inlaid in incised lines and marks on the slip cast or coiled form. The surface marks are created using various sgraffito tools when the clay vessel is in a leather-hard state. She bisque fires, then masks areas on the outside of the form using wax resist, glazing the inside and the unmasked areas with a matt or transparent gloss with the final firing at 1180-1240°C. All pieces are high-fired ceramic.

All pieces are individually hand made by Rowena in her Brighton studio and have her signature mark on the base.

This is the 3rd scarf I have purchased from this artist. I really love them because they are nice and lightweight and sit around the neck so comfortably. The colours are also stunning and very true to the pictures.

The lamb was a lot larger than I had expected and I absolutely love it - the detail and craftsmanship are superb. I would definitely buy from this seller again.

Love the design of the earrings and went on to purchase a bracelet. Only disappointment was the original packaging which I didn’t feel was the same quality as the product inside but the artist rectified this on my 2nd purchase and it was much improved.

Bought these in the gold. Loved the simple understated design which can be so easily dressed up or down. Very modern classic to suit any age. Good to see such young & talented artists. SAG.1/2/2021

Absolutely love Mrs Toad, the workmanship and skill of John is outstanding. It’s so lifelike I keep expecting it to come to life . The postage and packaging were fast and reliable. Just a little bit of saving now as I believe Mr Toad will have to join us .
