ROB D'EATH - BIOGRAPHY

ARTIST STATEMENT

Rob has been involved with clay since being inspired by the rugged beauty of Korean Ceramics in a museum in Jakarta, Indonesia. He still relishes the opportunity to throw on the wheel and create series of functional ceramic objects. The work of Bernard Leach ,Michael Cardew and Shoji Hamada still resonate.

In recent years, he has experimented with sculptural form in clay and these experiments have, in turn, informed his practice.

He opened Sliding Rock Contemporary Ceramics in 2006 with the aim of promoting the wealth of talented ceramic artists that live and work on the island of Ireland.

Rob also teaches ceramics in the Art and Design Department of GMIT.
