Robert Brumby studied at the RCA. He was elected as Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors and was formerly Head of York School of Art and Design. His public commissions, in various media, have earned him an International reputation. He lives in North Yorkshire continuing to work on portraits and landscapes.




I recently bought a piece of studio pottery the name of it's maker is Robert Brumby,creator the the Madonna & child sculpture in Liverpool cathedral
Does anyone have info that might help me research this painter & ceramic designer please?

they were made in the 1960's, I rate Brumby as one of the best British ceramic artists of the 20th Century

I assume that the "r" is for Robert so it is welcome to the Forum and to your thread!

If people do wish to contact you then they will be able to do so using the PM button, which may have happened already.

Hello Robert and welcome to the forum,
Yes I have been trying to get a contact number for several years now to discuss your work and to ask about the pottery I have posted in this thread.
I look forward to speaking to you soon.
Dan

I spoke to Robert this evening and finally got confirmation that all my pieces were made by him Most Excellent He also told me of the studio he had in The Shambles, York (1963 - 1975)

Robert was commissioned to create many architectural pieces beginning in 1967,I have shown pictures of Liverpool and Manchester churches but can now add a listed church in Pontefract and St Michaels in Wolverhampton.

I believe there is also work existing in Manchester schools and possibly a pub in Liverpool! so plenty of leads for me to research
