Clay Habitat Resident Maker



Ruben was born in Asturias, a northern Spanish province filled with wild spaces. His work echoes the rough qualities found throughout Asturias’ rugged cliffs, plush vegetation and seaside beaches, with colours and textures inspired by these surroundings. With eddies of greens, blues and earthy browns, every piece he makes is unique, even when part of a series.

"I have had numerous and diverse careers throughout my life, however it was when working at a Japanese restaurant that I first became drawn to pottery. Inspired by the exquisite vessels, plates and bowls, I was moved by their use of raw materials, and the methods and traditions utilized to create this functional tableware. My vision is to create beautiful, functional art for everyday use. Some rustic, others refined, but always a pleasure to hold and feel." — Ruben. Ceramics Artist

Ruben’s work is greatly inspired by the “Mingei” folk art movement; each hand-crafted piece provides beauty and functionality in everyday objects. All his creations are made by hand — some wheel thrown, others carefully hand built. He seeks to imbed each piece with both a sense of artistic creation and daily utility.
