Philip Eglin studied ceramics in Staffordshire and at the Royal College of Art, London. He was winner of the 1996 Jerwood Prize for ceramics.

His fourth solo show Popes, Pin ups and Pooches was his last solo show at The Scottish Gallery in August 2009. The full, dynamic range of artistic and expressive skill which flows from Eglin's rich, eclectic and symbolic palette is apparent in all of his work, there is the familiar iconography of madonnas and Christs, popes, pin-ups, dogs and of course football.  Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art acquired a major piece for their collection from this exhibition.

Public collections include: Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Potteries Museum, Stoke-on-Trent.

Phil Eglin will be the subject of a solo exhibition as part of our Festival exhibition programme in August 2017.
