Bowbeer Designs by Resident Artist Caitlin Bowbeer

My illustrative work is playful, contemporary, and often takes a tangible form, using unusual structures and materials as a canvas for design. I am passionate about producing contemporary drawings and designs whilst keeping my practice environmentally sustainable where possible. My most regular commission work has focused on illustrating resources for outreach projects aimed at communities and young people, creating work for such clients as The National Galleries of Scotland and Dundee Heritage Trust.

After gaining my degree in Illustration from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2016, I decided to up sticks and head to Brighton to gain some inspiration and a get bit of sunshine. Whilst working in a pottery studio, I rediscovered the beauty of clay. I think it’s properties are fascinating and find that it complements my illustrative work perfectly. I learned how to throw on the wheel and create minimal designs that work well with their partnered illustrations, keeping them fresh and playful.

I have now been living in Edinburgh for almost 2 years and am privileged to share my newest studio in St Margaret’s House with two very close friends. Although the effects of the lock down have been tough, with reduced work and having to temporarily move out of Edinburgh to help family members, it has brought new opportunities for learning and development within my practice. I have used this time to create an online shop, work on personal projects, and slow down, taking more time with each of my ceramic pieces. I have begun to handbuild with clay which allows me to make larger and more experimental forms and I am keen to try more traditional techniques of firing when a kiln is not accessible. I am hopeful that by indulging in this time I will be able to apply new techniques and skills to my practice in the future.

Rainbow Project 7

Rainbow Project: 7 classes run by 7 women dedicated to the 7 colours of the rainbow to honour this stormy time in our lives while waiting to welcome the rainbow afterwards. Yoga, creativity, cooking, flower essences, writing, yoga, mindfulness, and spirituality. The project has been created by Giada Gaslini of Invisible Caims, inspired by the strong conviction that we need to offer the ability to endure in spite of all the challenges we are facing.

We have recalled the main lesson from the Polish scientist Marie Curie:

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”

These are our classes and even if you cannot attend on the day, you can contribute purchasing the recording which will be sent to you afterwards.
