Tim Rowan's art education began during his years studying Fine Arts at The State University of New York. After graduating, he journeyed to Japan to work under the ceramist Ryuichi Kakurezaki. Since returning to the US, he's worked in studios across Massachusetts and New York. 

Rowan practices subtly, understatement, and restraint in his work. In his own words, the pieces "do not compete for attention... They have the capacity to be engaging on different levels and this is best accomplished when one allows the work to reveal itself over time.”
