The Beauty of Giving

ORIBE x ROWAN HARRISON

Discover the Limited Edition Holiday Collection

The universal theme of purpose is manifested in each work through the symbolic expressions, each representing a different but essential connection in the ever-repeating cycle of our lives in which we build relationships and gather new experiences and knowledge to better ourselves and the world.

Terra

Terra embodies preservation. Earth is our enduring, precious foundation upon which change and growth are built. There are four revered mountain ranges in the Southwest region and each holds a great spiritual significance, which are represented by the multicolor triangular motifs. The circular shapes are the sacred hoop, representing the moon, the planets and the sun as well as the concepts of infinity and completeness. The red palette evokes the multicolor mesas and plateaus found throughout the Southwest, archiving the passage of time for all to see with each band of color.

Aquatica

Aquatica symbolizes change. Water is the great source of transformation and the catalyst between growth and preservation. Spiral motifs are paramount in this work, representing the constant change in our lives that drive us to evolve and grow over time. The ten circular shapes in the center grow from simplistic dots to detailed circles, visibly displaying the complexity of life as one blooms to maturity. The blue palette is inspired by the various forms of water that nourish the earth.

Flora

Flora signifies growth. A celebration of life, where all elements intertwine and overlap, spring from the topmost symmetrical shapes. Free-flowing lines illustrate the seemingly spontaneous path of life as one grows and changes, while the large dots represent the stars and our ancestors who help guide us on our meandering paths in life. The green palette is bright and full of life, much like the desert in full bloom.

Artist Rowan Harrison classifies his work as contemporary decorative pottery and ink drawings that have a strong tie to his Native American heritage and culture. Rowan created three original works of art in collaboration with Oribe Hair Care for its limited edition holiday 2020 collection using traditional Southwestern indigenous motifs. Each design was intricately hand-drawn and painted, combining elements of the Pueblo craftspeople to represent the land, natural beauty and spiritual elements of the American Southwest.

Rowan Harrison, Artist, Two Tribes Pottery

Get to know Rowan

  • I started to get serious about my artwork in my mid-20s. I began school at Fullerton College with the goal of becoming a graphic designer. At the same time, I worked with clay on the side as a weekend hobby. From there I started taking workshops in Anaheim, California where I became connected with the Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center. I eventually helped curate an exhibit on the indigenous people of Orange County, which was a turning point for me; I knew what I wanted the exhibit to look like but I had to figure out how to make it come to life. That experience encouraged me to become more professional in my work, which started by including ceramics classes into my curriculum at Fullerton to broaden my knowledge.

  • I am Native American on both sides of my family. My mother is from the Pueblo of Isleta and my father is Navajo. I was born in Albuquerque but grew up in Long Beach, California. Growing up, my family and I stayed close with both Native American communities and often visited family on the reservations. My parents currently live on the Pueblo reservation, so I’m still able to visit several times a year.

  • Artwork is an important link in continuing the Native American culture into the next generation. Teaching has given me the rich and rewarding experience of sharing and instructing students in an art form that is generationally inherited and Indigenous in origin. Through the process, I’m sharing elements of Native American culture to a broader audience and also getting closer to my own heritage. My hope is that the classes bring joy to people’s lives and they continue to share what they learn with their own communities.

  • I spent summers with my grandmother on the Pueblo reservation and she taught me how to make small animal figures out of clay. She really understood the process of how to work with the material and was instrumental in teaching me her knowledge and techniques.

  • I was introduced to the Oribe team while showcasing my artwork at the Sante Fe Indian Market. They came upon my booth and asked to take pictures of my work. We spoke about my pen-and-ink designs and use of Southwestern Indigenous motifs. We exchanged emails and a few days later, they contacted me to discuss a potential partnership with Oribe.

  • The partnership began with a few phone calls where the Oribe team spoke about what they had in mind for the project. They arranged for me to fly to NYC to introduce me to the Oribe aesthetic and determine what elements from my body of work would make sense to utilize for their collection.
    The team shared a booklet on the brand that had vivid imagery of different hairstyles and textures, which I eventually used as inspiration for the designs. From there, I created ten sketches that we then narrowed down to three. The partnership was completely collaborative and involved a blending of our ideas and artistry, which Oribe fostered throughout the whole process.

  • The pen and ink designs are hand drawn, created without the use of rulers, stencils, protractors or compasses. For many years, I have been exploring Native American motifs and patterns on my three-dimensional ceramic pieces in a symmetrical format. By applying these patterns and decorative elements on paper, it allows me to explore these designs in a more non-symmetrical way.

Behind the Bottle

Oribe’s tradition of craftsmanship and artistry is interwoven into the fabric of our brand. “Oribe’s design philosophy was founded on the principle of excellence and craftsmanship, where modern creativity and traditional knowledge intersect,” said Jennifer Smith, Vice President of Packaging for Oribe Hair Care. “Through our partnership with Rowan, we were able to create something beautiful and unique that explores our connection to the world via the use of traditional Native American iconography seen through Rowan’s modern perspective.”



A glimpse into the creation of the Oribe x Rowan Harrison collaboration. Rowan shares sketches of the three pieces of art he created for the collection as well as music, films, and prolific Native American artists and writers that inspire him.
