About Tez Roberts Cermaics

Using both stoneware and raku firing methods to create unique pieces with both form and function.

My interest in ceramics began at a very early age. I remember running through giant kiln rooms at a pottery factory in Stoke-on-Trent, to greet my grandmother after a days work. I suppose you could say its in my blood.

I graduated from Wolverhampton University in 2003 with a BA (hons) in Ceramics and Sculpture. My work at university focused on the body beautiful, weaving landscape forms into both ceramic representations and audio-visual media.

I take inspiration from natural forms and landscapes. My pieces echo the fluidity and cycles found within nature; my glazes reflect the rusty reds and vibrant greens and blues around me. My work invites nature into your home.

I use a variety of firing methods, Raku and stoneware being my preferred. The unpredictable fire from Raku and the fluid movement of the stoneware glaze is a major source of inspiration in itself.

I also deliver ceramic workshops and teach at my studio and venues through-out the UK, ranging from schools and museums to Glastonbury Festival!

I've recently swapped the rolling Welsh Valleys for the beautiful Devon coast. My new studio is based at Cockington Court and includes a shop front so you can buy directly from me all year round as well as from my Etsy store.
