Paul’s ceramic work mainly consists of hand-built slabbed constructions.
The sculptures are made from crank clay and fired to earthenware. They are decorated with various underglazes and glazes.
His work is developed from small 2D abstract collages and paintings.
Paul tends to work instinctively from his collages without any tight parameters on final outcomes, eliminating any preconceptions of 3D solutions until he is in the moment of making.
The work tends to be semi-architectural based on his interest of soviet bus stops, lido diving platforms and pylons. Constructivist, Brutalist and Futurist movements inform his work, along with geometrical art and abstract expressionism.
Paul graduated in 2016 with BA (Hons) in 3D Design and Craft at University of Brighton, having previously worked as civil engineer for 20+ years. His work is handmade in his Brighton studio consisting mainly of limited edition, one-off and non-functional sculptures for interiors.
