Rowena Kinsman Potter

Rowena Kinsman has had a long standing interest in pottery and, whilst studying for a postgraduate diploma at Goldsmith’s College, she became involved with the technique of vapour firing and built her first soda kiln.

In 1993, Rowena moved to Somerset, built a workshop and kiln and began practising as a potter.  Initially, Rowena worked with soda vapour but more recently began firing with salt which she thinks is more effective for her work.

Rowena’s work can be used in the kitchen, bathroom and garden and her work is thrown, with hand-modeled handles and then decorated with coloured slips.  Rowena enjoys the process of making pots and this is reflected in her work.  Fascinated by the  firing process and enjoying being involved in the process, Rowena feels that the sodium atmosphere reveals the textures and surfaces of the pot.

One Craft Gallery always has a great collection of Rowena’s wonderful work.
