We make pots in Earthenware and Porcelain and host classes from our workshop in Mid Devon.

RAMP is Roop & Al Make Pots, a creative partnership between Alice Hartford and Rupert Johnstone.

Roop & Al met at Edinburgh College of Art in the late 1990’s and began working together as RAMP in 2001 at Cockpit Arts in Deptford, London.

RAMP makes thrown Earthenware and Porcelain functional and studio ceramics. Roop specialises in the throwing of pots and Al’s focus is on the decoration.

In 2004 we moved to Devon initially to a studio at the Beaford Arts Centre and in 2005 to our house and workshop in Silverton, where we have been ever since.

* December Open Studio Update *

Sadly we have to cancel our Christmas Open Studio this weekend 17th – 18th December due to illness.

Instead, we plan to hold a January Sale online and in the workshop on the weekend of the 14-15th of January from 11-4.

Like our pre-Christmas Open Studio there will be lots of pots, including studio seconds and January discounts as well as hot things to eat and drink if you can make it to the studio.

Check back here soon for updates over the Christmas period.

Have a happy and restful Christmas.
