Paul Scott's ceramics are Cumbrian Blue(s)....

I love the idea of making olde world Toile and Delftware into little porcelain scenes!

From the talented Paul Scott:
My work involves the digital manipulation of established vocabularies of printed motif, pattern and image from industrial ceramic archives and engraved book illustration. Cloning and collaging these, sometimes with photographic elements, I create contemporary artworks in ceramic and printed form. The altered ready-mades, hand-built sculptural vignettes and architectural interventions are all characterized by a blue and white semiotic. Together with a focus on pastoral landscapes and chinoiserie, the work draws on the cultural wallpaper in our minds, playing with our sense of the familiar.
