We are delighted to present Lara Scobie’s first solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery. Lara studied ceramics at Camberwell College of Arts in London before completing a Post Graduate degree at Edinburgh College of Art.

‘Whilst creating this new body of work, I have continued to explore my fascination with pattern and mark-making on ceramic forms. I have explored new colour variations, developed new forms and refined my making process. The theme of balance has continued to be a constant, significantly underlining the new work in which ideas of dynamic interplay between form and surface develop. Each element of balance is a new discovery, found somewhere between knowing how far the material can be pushed and when to let the material’s own dogged nature dictate the final journey. By integrating drawing, surface mark-making and volume, I play with the balance of space and pattern alongside hue and texture on both the decorated and void surface areas. For me, it is the balance between composition and form, absence and presence, that offers some of the most exciting opportunities for expressing my creative voice.' - Lara Scobie, 2018.
