Tim Rowan creates hand-built, wood-fired functional vessels with a strong Japanese mingei (folk pottery) influence using local clays. In the first decade of the 21st century, he located a clay at a commercial building site which he transported by the truck load. This material, with large particulate clay inclusions of contrasting color, was used over many years frequently in large sculptural works.

Rowan's work reflects his interest in simple forms and understatement. He uses experimental firing techniques and various clays to achieve interesting colors and textures in his work.
