Allan Lowe

Allan Lowe (1907-2001) was born in Melbourne and trained as a painter before setting up a pottery studio at Merlyston, Victoria, in 1929. Over the next few years, he taught himself to throw, studied glazes at the State Library of Victoria, built a kiln with the help of an advisor from the Hoffman Potteries, and took pottery classes under Gladys Kelly at the Working Men's College (later Melbourne Technical College). He moved to Eaglemont in 1932, then Ferntree Gully in 1944, where he began potting full-time. Influenced by the Chinese pottery he saw in the K.W. Kent Collection at the National Gallery of Victoria, he made simple earthenware forms with sophisticated glazes and minimal decoration. He also became interested in Aboriginal art, featuring Aboriginal designs on some forms, becoming friends with the indigenous artist Bill Onus and making several trips to Central Australia in 1956, 1963 and 1964. He was awarded a Bronze medal at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics Art Festival, and, in 1979, was made a Fellow of the Royal South Australian Socierty of Arts. His works are signed with an incised or painted 'Allan Lowe'. His wife Peg, his son Peter and Peter's wife Marian also worked in the studio. Their works are signed 'Peg Lowe', 'Lowe' with a long stem to the L, and 'Marian Lowe' respectively.
