Jo Lowde

 

I live in the Preseli Hills, Pembrokeshire, surrounded by flocks of mountain sheep and herds of dairy cows.

 

I am is passionate about creating non-functional clay works and using clay to draw in three dimensions. 

 

My work is mainly hand built and fired nearly exclusively using the Raku process. Raku is an ancient and disciplined technique involving great extremes of temperature, "the searing heat of the kiln and the explosive fiery combustion of air, red hot clay and sawdust always brings an invigorating and raw unpredictability to my work".
