David Roberts

  INTRODUCTION
  • Born in  Sheffield, English in 1947, David lives and has his studio in the Yorkshire Pennine  mill town of Holmfirth in the North of England. He enjoys a wide reputation for his distinctive ceramics. Initially simple, monumental vessels these ceramics exhibit a concern with the hollow, volumetric qualities of hand built pos together with a fascination for , and control over, surface incident arising from the raku process. Some ten years ago these glazed surfaces were abandoned in order to explore the possibilities of the interaction of smoke marking on the clay body itself. The resulting work is strongly evocative of David's  increasing engagement with both his local landscape and a renewed interest in post war abstract painting.
