Welcome to the magical world of Stonesplitter ceramic clocks by Ian Roberts. Each of Ian's clocks is a unique creation that has a whimsical quality - we think they may come alive and dance at night! Ian also hides a sweet little mouse on the clock as well as signing and numbering each one.
Ian Roberts started to learn the art of pottery restoration in 1974 through a family link involved in the antique trade. This was the basis from which he developed a real interest in the art of pottery itself. Ian thinks that his ceramics reflect his interest and working life within the antique trade as he feels they have an 'age' to them that the raku process inflicts on contemporary ceramics. The style of his ceramics could also be said to have an architectural feel, borne out of his general interest in the architecture of the past.
