Born in Salisbury in 1942, Laurence McGowan established his own workshop in 1979, having spent several years working with Alan Caiger-Smith at Aldermaston Pottery.

Trained in the traditional majolica technique of pottery painting, McGowan now applies this knowledge to enhance his thrown stoneware forms with ever-changing brushwork patterns distilled from plant and animal forms. Whilst in no way imitative, these often contain echoes of his interest in the decorative arts of the Middle East and their assimilation into the contemporary vocabulary through the Arts and Crafts movement. Some pots are also inscribed, exploring the extra dimension calligraphy can give to a piece.
