Inspiration has come from the work of Bob Hollis and Ray Finch with their very tactile work. Rupert tries to show the sensual nature of ceramics with bowls that need to be held, and in doing so reflect his passions and creative drives in the ceramic form.
Hoping to pass on within each piece the passion it took to make it. Experimenting mainly with glazes that react with each other to find ones that add to the sensuality of each piece rather than to just dress it.
Current work and Availability
Japanese inspired large Raku bowls. High fired Stoneware bowls with reactive glazes.
All bowls are coil built in Stoneware clay , fired in oxidation . Raku bowls fired and fumed in traditional way.
History and Background
Born in 1958 into a family of artists well known in the Coventry/Warwickshire area, he studied Fine Art at the Leamington School of Art under Barry Burman.
Whilst Rupert has exhibited and undertaken private commissions for his pictures, after years of collecting studio ceramics his interest has evolved into creating tactile, hand-built coiled pots of his own. Rupert has developed a unique style that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, with glazes reflecting his artistic palette.
