Ramp

 

Devon based RAMP (Roop & Alice Make Pots) is a combination of talents between potter Roop and decorator Alice.

 Roop creates the pots in a simple clean form making them a good open platform for Alice to decorate. Inspiration for the decoration comes from looking at plant life and the natural environment In turn this is abstracted into various patterns and motifs found on the pots.Alice uses coloured slips to paint with, building them up in layers using different brush strokes, while the pots are still wet. The result seems to echo the designs of the 1950's but still has a very contemporary feel.
