Extended Bio
RAMP - RAMP – (Roop & Al Make Pots) is a creative collaboration between Rupert Johnstone & Alice Hartford. We make functional and decorative Earthenware and Porcelain studio ceramics. When we first started working together in 2001, we developed a range of slip decorated earthenware using brushstrokes in layers, which we have continued to work on since then. Our aim has always been to make bright, cheerful and joyful pots that mix some of the traditions of slipware with a range of other influences from ceramics, painting and illustration. We also make a range of porcelain containers with recycled plastic lids. Matthew LeBreton - As an experienced heritage skills Craftsman, Glass Artist and Teacher, my practice covers glass commissions, repairs, in both stained glass and heritage building, and educational courses, and spans a comprehensive variety of specialist traditional skills. I’ve been described as “the next generation of a dying breed…an artisan with a well-grounded foot in several areas of expertise”. In business since 2004 as Le Breton Traditional, and based near Exeter in Devon, I work for clients across the South West, and in the wider UK and Europe.
Devon Applied Arts Workshop is a dedicated studio and teaching workshop for ceramics and glass. Set up in the Exe Valley near Silverton in 2018, it is home to local makers RAMP (Roop & Al Make Pots) and Matt LeBreton of LeBreton Traditional from which they produce their own work and teach a growing community of makers.
