Almuth Tebbenhoff FRBS

Almuth Tebbenhoff was born in Fürstenau in north-west Germany. In 1969, a year after completing her secondary schooling, she moved to the UK where she studied ceramics at the Sir John Cass School of Art from 1972 to 1975. Following that, she set up a studio in London and for the next six years made studio ceramics, while she developed her ideas for sculpture.

In 1981, Almuth established her Southfields studio in a former church hall. At first she worked in clay and wood, but in 1986 she started a two-year course in metal fabrication at South Thames College, London.

Her early pieces were monochrome - mostly grey - abstract explorations of space and volume through geometric devices. Since the early nineties, Almuth has been moving towards a freer mode of expression, creating explosive forms in bright colours through a steady evolution of processes, investigating her current themes of light, space and the origins of matter.
