Roelof Uys

Roelof Uys took up the role of Senior Production Potter at the Leach Pottery in May 2013. Roelof studied Art at East London Technical College, South Africa and founded his first ceramics studio in Limpopo Province in 1992, where he collaborated with potter Solomon Matatoko. He went on to work in Knysna as a Resident Potter at Bitou Crafts, founded by Clementina van der Walt, before starting his own production pottery in Cape Town, where he also served on the Committee of the Western Cape Potters Association.

As part of the Leach Pottery’s senior management team Roelof supervises the training of student apprentices and visiting interns, and oversees the design and production of the new Leach Standard Ware.

“It was a great honour for me to be offered the roll Senior Potter here at the Leach and I hope to continue working in a tradition that has influenced and inspired so many artists form all over the world.

"I am always mindful that I stand on the shoulders of giants.”
