George Lowe - Decorah, IA


Iowa potter George Lowe instills his work with a presence that is calm and simple, alive with purpose. “I have been called to be a potter for my life’s work,” he states. “I can’t imagine being truly satisfied doing anything else.”

George holds a BA in art from Luther College and an MFA in ceramics from Wichita State University. He was an instructor and lecturer at schools and workshops around the country before establishing his Decorah, IA studio in 1999. He is married to basket maker Martha Monson Lowe, whose work is also available at The Grand Hand.
