Paul Smith short statement March 2015 I am a full-time artist making figurative hand-built ceramic sculptures and limited editions. Most of my sculptures are small or medium-sized. I also make large sculptures for outdoor spaces. The images I make are dream-like and contemplative; playing with the conventions of fairytales and fables, often turning the stories on their heads and twisting them. The style is bold and semi-abstract with graceful sweeping curves and simplified details.
