Paul Scott

Paul Scott lives and works in rural Cumbria, England, and is known for industrially produced blue and white ware, to which he adds imagery or erases parts of it to give a political meaning. While using the appealing traditional blue and white, he disarms us with his contemporary message as in “Hartlepool Ghost Ships, Canisteo”.
Paul Scott has undertaken a series of wood firings of which these Soda and salt-glazed, wood fired trees are the result. Here Scott combines the graphic quality of his work with the effects of these atmospheric firings.
