I am an Artist / Maker / Teacher working principally in clay, but with other media when the occasion demands.  Since 2001 I’ve made pots with my partner Alice under the name of RAMP (Roop and Al Make Pots).  We are members of The Devon Guild of Craftsmen and the CPA (Craftsmen Potters Association).  RAMP has collaborated with animators, designers, scientists and technologists on various projects over the years as artists and teachers.  I am interested in perceptive boundaries and how we think about things.  I am always interested in new ways to explore the material, but am not bound to it. At the moment I am working on a project called BellHouse which allows me to explore clay’s potential for sound, replacing other sounds (our voices) and movements with bell sounds.
