David Roberts British

Roberts has exhibited and presented workshops throughout the UK, Europe and USA introducing my processes and work to people worldwide. In the mid 80s, using modern kiln materials, he pioneered large scale Raku in the UK. During the late ’80s and early ’90s he was one of a handful of international potters who invented and developed the Painting With Smoke (Naked Raku) process extending the repertoire of contemporary Raku Ceramics.


His current work reflects an interest in post-war abstract painting and an engagement with the dynamic rhythms of landscape and its interaction with water and erosion. His ceramics are represented in internationally important public and private collections. He is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain, an exhibiting member of Contemporary Applied Arts and an artist member of the International Academy of Ceramics.
