Paul Scott

 

BIOGRAPHY

Paul Scott is a Cumbrian based artist with a diverse practice and an international reputation.

 

He creates individual pieces that blur the boundaries between fine art, craft and design. Paul is well known for research into printed vitreous surfaces, as well as his characteristic blue and white artworks in glazed ceramic.

 

Scott’s artworks can be found in public collections around the globe – including The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design Norway, the Victoria and Albert Museum London, National Museums Liverpool,  Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh and Brooklyn Art Museum USA.

 

Commissioned work can be found in a number of UK museums as well as public places in the North of England, including Carlisle, Maryport, Gateshead and Newcastle Upon Tyne. He has also completed large scale works in Hanoi, Vietnam and Guldagergård public sculpture park in Denmark.

 

A combination of rigorous research, studio practice, curation, writing and commissioned work ensures that his work is continually developing. It is fundamentally concerned with the re-animation of familiar objects, landscape, pattern and a sense of place.

He has been Professor of Ceramics at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) since 2011.

 

His current research project New American Scenery has been enabled by an Alturas Foundation artist award.
