Roy Tonkin began his fascination with shapes, myths and figures at the age of 12 after reading Tolkien. At West Surrey College of Art and at the Bath Academy where he studied pottery and printmarking, he developed his interest in carborundrum etchings which enabled him to build up a three dimensional surface on the plate, applying layers of paste and iron fillings as if working with clay.He set up a studio in London in the early 80's and produces his ceramic works and carborundrum plates printing them himself. He finds inspiration in medieval legends - in the crafts, woodwork, pottery, masonry and tapestries of that era. His images concern a world of allegory and fables.
