Dale Bowen was born Staffordshire 1963 and now paints from his studio in North Devon. Always interested in painting from an early age he went on to study art at Newcastle-under-Lyme College.
Dale is a master potter & has worked in the industry for over 20 years, firstly for Coalport China and then for Wedgwood for the last 15 years. Working for Wedgewood in the Prestige Department, he created many one-off pieces for the collectors' market and commissions. Many of these pieces were highly decorated and exclusive, fetching in some cases in excess of £100,000. More recently he gained a masters degree in ceramics at Staffordshire University and exhibited privately in New York, Washington and San Francisco, including an Exclusive Masterpiece Collection in Japan for Wedgwood.
Creativity comes from a number of different sources, observation or even conversation, inspiration always surprises me in the ever unusual ways it catches me. Although working in the pottery industry for so long and being creative with clay, it is always the joy of painting which is my first love and keeps me returning to canvas.
