About Chloë Dowds
I have been working with clay for over ten years. It takes time and experience to really understand a material and work together with it in a collaboration of sorts. Having studied art, ceramics and art history, I finally set up my own studio in 2014.
Clay is elemental. It is the earth beneath our feet and it is alive. The simple act of picking up a handful of clay and creating with such basic tools as your hands is incredibly poetic to me. Using clay and fire to create sophisticated objects is my passion.

I am a thrower which means that the vast majority of my work in thrown on the potters wheel. I use a very high grade porcelain to create fine contemporary tableware. All of my glazes are mixed by hand to recipes I have developed over the years. I take a lot of inspiration from the incredibly beautiful porcelain itself. Often times we work within a dialogue together allowing for the work to emerge.
