After studying Ceramics at Camberwell School of Art with tutors Lucie Rie, Colin Pearson and Hans Coper, Deborah spent four years in Japan studying ceramics & the Japanese language.  Since 1975 she has lived and worked in Olney where she makes screen prints, bowls & jugs, often decorated with words using Albertus, her father, Berthold Wolpe’s typeface, or freely cut letters of her own.

Early influences include: visits to the V&A, Natural History and Science Museums; fossil hunting on the Sussex coast; archaeological objects; Portobello Road antiques market; the work of her parents, Berthold Wolpe, typographer and silversmith, and Margaret Wolpe, sculptor and silversmith, and the work of their friends. She decided to become a potter at the age of ten, after watching Judith Partridge throwing at the village flower show in Rodmell, Sussex, several years later she worked at the Rodmell Pottery in the school holidays.
