Hello and Welcome!
Robert Bothma is a homewares and interior
accessories brand. A small creative business
run by me…Robert Bothma!
Architecture is my inspiration and it inspires the design of all my products. I love translating the patterns, colours, textures and details of buildings in to high quality interior accessories and stationery. Starting off on paper my designs are then developed on the computer to make modern, graphic and colourful patterns that make a statement.
Currently my range contains tea towels, cushions and cards. All my products are either handmade by me or made by lovely suppliers and manufacturers in the UK and Berlin.
A little more about me…
My earliest memories are of creating, from slavishly copying Little Mermaid drawings to give to adoring aunts to THAT paper pond. How was I to know that it wouldn’t hold water?
Luckily my creativity is a little more refined and honed these days.
Art was a love throughout primary and secondary school. This took me on to Plymouth College of Art to study 3D design which enabled me to explore a range of different materials and 3D production techniques. I worked with ceramic, metals and glass around concepts of craft, furniture and architecture.
I stayed at a place I loved and followed 3D design with a BA in Spatial Design. I graduated in 2011 with a First Class BA(Hons). My final major project was exhibited as part of the ‘Best in Show’, in the College’s annual degree exhibition.
