Paul ScottBorn: 1953
Paul Scott lives and works in rural Cumbria. He has been a professiojnal artist for over thirty years and is best known for his research into ceramics and print. He creates individual pieces that are exacting and critical, blurring the boundaries between fine art and design. A leading proponent of ceramics and print, he has been instrumental in demonstrating the contemporary creative potential of a combination used in industry for hundreds of years to mass-produce decorative wares and tiles.
Paul’s commissioned work can be found in public places in the North of England, including Carlisle, Maryport, Gateshead and Newcastle Upon Tyne. In 2010 he designed 30 linear metres of the record breaking Hanoi Mosaic Mural in Vietnam. His ceramic printed objects are in private and public collections around the world including Tullie House Carlisle Museum and Art Gallery; The National Museum Stockholm, Sweden; The National Decorative Arts Museum, Norway; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, USA.
Confected, Borrowed and Blue... an Installation by Paul Scott toured throughout 2015 - 2016 at various loctaions throughout the UK.
As part of our Festival exhibition for 2016, Paul Scott is presenting Cutttings, Ruins, Refugees and Wild Roses.
