About the maker.With a long background in the art world, Tom Rooth comes from a family of artists and was a senior art specialist at Christie's before setting up his ceramics studio. Tom says, "I’ve painted and drawn all my life and love working in ceramics, which I find a very expressive and tactile medium. I particularly like making plates, as they look fantastic hanging on walls as pictures, as well as displayed on tables and shelves. They are also functional, and an integral part of a good meal - one of the best and most important things in life."
