Paul Smith
sculpture

Festival: 2018

I am a full-time artist making figurative hand-built ceramic sculptures and limited editions.

My subject matter is our relationship with the animal world, the inspiration coming from a love of nature and art, and European folk stories.

I try to make the shapes of my animal sculptures as simple as possible.

I adhere to the principle that less is more.

The style is bold and semi-abstract with graceful sweeping curves and simplified details.
