Rob received support from Nesta as part of our Fellowship programme (1999-2005) which supported the development of talented individuals working across science, technology and the arts.

During his fellowship he worked with botanical scientists at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, and used his artistic and technical skills to capture stunning images of microscopic plant material.

Rob has gone on to publish award-winning books based on his work and is now Professor of Ceramic Art and Design at Central Saint Martins. You can find out more about Rob's work and a full list of his books at
