"Working with clay is a discipline, a process that has structure and technique, sustaining space for spontaneity and inspiration to occur."
Janice Rowell's work is inpsired by the natural beauty of the California coastline the mountains, ocean, beaches, sand dollars and habitats. Her simple porcelain forms are intended to honor the earth and the four directions while preserving the balance of holistic simplicity.
Rowell approaches clay as an integral art form that incorporates body, mind and spirit. This attitude of contemporary primitivism actively seeks out balance and the integrity of purpose to bring a little beauty into the world.
