Ruby Sharp has been a ceramic artist since her first encounter with clay Hornsey Art College, back in the 1970’s where she took her art foundation course.
At The Central School of Art and Design in Holborn, she went on to study Industrial Design and graduated with a BA (Hons) in 1978. The course included ceramics and Walter Keeler was one of her tutors.
Following graduation she became a product and interior designer, and as her interest in ceramics grew she continued to develop her skills in evening classes and selling her work privately, at art shows and at galleries.
Working from her studio in her walled garden in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, she now designs, develops and creates her pottery and sculptures, aiming to create pieces which excite and stimulate the senses.
She also runs classes for small groups of adults in her studio.
Her work is available from a number of galleries, art and craft shows, as well as open studio days. Whilst exhibiting at Art in Clay in the grounds of Hatfield House, and whilst managing the Pitstone Farm Museum Pottery area, she enjoys giving the public the opportunity to experience Raku firing, the potter’s wheel and hand build with clay.
