JoJo Rowley - current work
'Her work exhibits a keen attention to detail, functionality and form.'
'My journey with clay has only just begun.... My aim is to make functional, friendly work with a tendency to the feminine and the delicate. Work that can be used daily but still aesthetically enjoyed and appreciated'.
We are very pleased to be able to show a small selection of JoJo's work in the gallery at all times. Her pieces are beautifully made and make perfect presents for any occasion.
The images shown opposite provide a taster of her work but we have lots more available in the gallery.

Although JoJo's journey with clay began many years ago at night classes in the UK and later, whilst living in America, at the Art League in Alexandria, Virginia, her commitment to clay was intensified in September 2008 when she was awarded the Lorton Arts Foundation 'Emerging Ceramic Artist Grant for 08/09' at the Workhouse Arts Centre in Virginia, USA. The year was spent working in the studio within the ceramics department, furthering her technical skills in all aspects of ceramics and practicing her craft. She produced work for sale, from the dedicated ceramics gallery, throughout the year, and culimnated with a solo exhibition which was a sell-out success.
On returning to the UK in 2009, JoJo set about constructing a studio in her garden in Surrey.
JoJo uses stoneware and porcelain clay, limiting her glazes to a small palette, often leaving part or all, of the outer surface of the pot unglazed, allowing the user to connect with the raw quality of the clay. She uses a mixture of commercial and home produced glazes and fires predominatley to Cone 6 in an electric kiln. She also produces pit fired, salt and wood fired pieces.
JoJo has travelled extensively over the years, and her time in Asia in particular has influenced some of her past work. 'I am very aware of my surroundings, the shapes, forms and textures I see in daily life, which either consciously or more often subconsciously filter through into my work'.
All of her work is hand thrown on the potters' wheel and whilst common melodies exist throughout the body of her work, each individual piece is unique. Her work exhibits a keen attention to detail, functionality and form.
'My journey with clay has only just begun. I am excited by a future dedicated to perfecting my craft. My aim is to make functional, friendly work with a tendency to the feminine and the delicate. Work that can be used daily but still aesthetically enjoyed and appreciated'.
