From the DeMorgan Foundation web page. Laurence McGowan was born in Salisbury in 1942. After an earlier career in land surveying in various parts of the world, he resolved to follow an interest kindled during his school years and become a potter. Receiving workshop training, first with Pru Greene at. And then with Alan Caiger-Smith at. Trained in the traditional majolica or in-glaze technique of pottery decoration, McGowan now applies this knowledge to enhance his thrown stoneware pots 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 Islamic decorative arts and their assimilation into the contemporary vocabulary through the Arts and Craft Movement. Some pots are inscribed, exploring the extra dimension that calligraphy can give a piece. Commissioned commemorative and presentation pieces form a large part of his output. These have embraced everything from a plate to mark the 21st anniversary of the Antiques Roadshow, another for the city of Royston to mark the Millennium, Royal visits and the Yorkshire County Cricket Club Player of the Year trophy.
