Art Makes Lives Better (49/64)


Robert Brumby’s formal art training began in Hull at the age of thirteen, culminating in his later graduation from the Royal College of Art. Following a number of years as a designer in the ceramics industry, he set up his own studio/gallery in The Shambles in York where he designed and produced murals, architectural sculpture, paintings, ceramic sculpture, and functional stoneware for domestic use. His work gained national and international recognition and he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors. After many years of art educating and lecturing, he became the head of the York School of Art and Design in 1990.

Robert has exhibited widely in commercial and public galleries, including the Royal Academy, and has carried out major commissions for schools, universities, hospitals and churches, notably the ceramic reredo for the Church of St Augustine’s, Manchester (now a listed building), the three meter ceramic Madonna and Child statue for the Cathedral of Christ the King, Liverpool and the painted reredos for the Cathedral of St Mary’s, Middlesbrough. His work is in public and private collections in the UK, America, Canada and mainland Europe. Robert has been profiles in documentaries for the Tyne Tees, Yorkshire Television and the Canadian Broadcasting Service.
