Roger Bell - Roger Bell Ceramics

Hand building,

I trained in ceramics under Brian Starkey at Sutton College Of Liberal Arts in the 1980’s. I had some success with shows in the London area and the  Midlands. From 1989 to 2005 running the craft gallery Dexterity in Ambleside left time for making only a few ceramic pieces. Since then development has been rapid, with work sold from gallery exhibitions, ceramic shows in the UK and on the continent and open studio events. Work is held in collections in the UK (including the Leicestershire Collection), Germany, Holland and France. 

I regard myself as a sculptor  making work to fit into a domestic setting often incorporating other materials including metal, wood and textiles. My inspirations are eclectic and include the jigsaw form, architecture, metal cans from the first half of the 20th century, abstract sculpture, and furniture. I work mainly with grogged handbuilding clays rolled out as slabs, cut and  assembled, then  modelled and patterned or textured. Most work is raku fired. Sometimes I use high fired terracotta. In addition to sculptures I produce alphabetic planters, coasters, teapot stands, pencil pots, clocks and wall hanging pieces.
