To celebrate the launch of the Rye Society of Artists’ (RSA) new website, Rye News continues to profile one of their artists each week – including links to their website and social media accounts so you can keep up-to-date on their activities.
You can view some of the RSA member’s work at their Spring Exhibition, entitled ‘There will be Growth in Spring’, at Rye Art Gallery. The exhibition closes today, May 14. In addition, the RSA will be hosting their 70th Anniversary Summer Show later in 2021.
This week, the artist in focus is Judith Rowe
Judith Rowe grew up and began her pottery training in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. She went onto Farnham Art College for her degree, where she met and lived and worked with Rupert Spira at Froyle Pottery, Hampshire.
Following this she built her own studio on Eel Pie Island in the Thames at Twickenham, where she developed her own range of earthenware pottery over a decade.
In 2002 she moved to Hastings, setting up a small production workshop and a shop showcasing local makers’ called ‘Made in Hastings’.
Judith continues to love making functional pots that reflect the mystery and beauty of the landscape around us.
