Lara Scobie

Meet the Artist

Born: 1967

Lara studied ceramics at Camberwell College of Arts in London and has a Post Graduate from Edinburgh College of Art. Her current work is predominantly concerned with the dynamic interplay between form and pattern. This is explored through the cohesive integration of drawing, surface mark making and volume. She is equally interested in the space that surrounds pattern as much as the hue and texture of the decorated surface. This theme has been developed further within her ‘Tilted Bowls’ that articulate the symbiotic relationship between pattern and form. Surface pattern and colour observed in botanical life enable Lara to explore her love of colour and abstract pattern making.

Public Collections include:Paisley Museum, Glasgow, Scotland; Triennale de Porcelaine, Nyon, Switzerland; McManus Galleries, Dundee, Scotland; The Beaches Museum, Kansas State University, USA

Lara was the subject of a solo exhibition, Form and Surface, in December 2018 and in March 2021 we presented her second solo exhibition with The Gallery – Grapphica.
