From his own artist statement:
"Paul Scott, from the UK, is a conceptual artist, noted porcelain upcycler and known for his research into ceramics and print. He creates individual pieces that blur the boundaries between fine art, craft and design. With a penchant for rescuing cast offs, he fondly gives them new life, even highlighting their worn edges, chips, cracks and flaws, by using them as a canvas for biting social commentary."
What I appreciate is his use of the materials. Mixing in nature themes with these created ceramic pieces. Even using bone china to make cows & grass fields. His touch and mark making is incredible and I love how he takes this very traditional blue on white ceramics approach and makes it modern and contemplative.
Jo Woffinden works with a plethora of materials - plaster, concrete, even bone china - to create these… bowls? There’s really no other word I can use to label these. The elements make up sort of a bowl, but the structured displacement sort of makes them look like a glitch. Something that would have otherwise been organic, smooth, round, but has been hiccuped by her design process. They’re unnatural yet natural, imbalanced yet balanced, off-putting yet beautiful.
