Rupert & Alice Johnstone

RAMP – (Roop & Al Make Pots) is a creative collaboration between Rupert Johnstone & Alice Hartford. We make functional and decorative Earthenware and Porcelain studio ceramics.

When we first started working together in 2001, we developed a range of slip decorated earthenware using brushstrokes in layers, which we have continued to work on since then. Our aim has always been to make bright, cheerful and joyful pots that mix some of the traditions of slipware with a range of other influences from ceramics, painting and illustration. We also make a range of porcelain containers with recycled plastic lids.
