"My ceramic work is above all else, a celebration of the natural world informed by my daily observations, travels and life in my coastal hometown.
I enjoy the duality of mixing precision with playfulness; many layers of clay slips are built upon in a highly controlled manner, whereas the bold markings etched into the surface and the brushed glazes are added with impulsivity and freedom.
My focus is on 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 Gilbert
The small black, cream, and grey ceramics are food safe. Those from her Above the Stars Series 2 are not.
