Judith Roberts

CATEGORY: Paper Clays
METHOD: Hand Building
FIRING RANGE: 900°c – 1280°c

Judith’s current work combines traditional hand building techniques with more experimental ways of working with clay. She is intrigued by the versatility of porcelain paperclay (ES 600); how it ‘sticks’ to itself, dry or wet with the simple use of slip as a glue. Judith’s platters and vessels are a combination of slabbed and press moulded clay with piped, impressed and transfer decorations giving a contemporary twist to work inspired by historical artefacts and architecture in Stoke on Trent.

After completing a BA (Hons) in 3D design ceramics in 2013 at Staffordshire University, Judith became involved in various exhibitions and had stands at a number of craft and art events. At present she has a showcase exhibition at The Harley Gallery and also had a stand at their Christmas art market.
