Biography R. Cowan
At the suggestion of Bill Grulich, the following is from the artist's web site: www.cowanpottery.org
R. Guy Cowan was born in 1884 in East Liverpool, Ohio and educated in ceramics at the New York State School of Ceramics at Alfred. He founded the Cowan Pottery Studio in Lakewood, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland) in 1912. The first studio had three small kilns, with Cowan doing most of the designing himself. In the early years, he produced a variety of art pottery and ceramic tiles. In 1917, R. G. Cowan was presented with the first of many career awards for pottery in the International Show at the Art Institute of Chicago.
During the First World War, the studio closed while Cowan served as a Captain in the Chemical Warfare Service.
