Paul Philp was born in 1941 and studied ceramics at Cardiff College of Art. In the 1970s he was a visiting lecturer at the Central School of Art in London and at Bath School of Art, Corsham.

His work has been exhibited in London, Paris, and in New York and California, USA.

The slow process of hand-building allows Philp’s work to evolve naturally. Sand and a mixture of porcelain and red clays can cause cracking and fissures, because of the different shrinking ratios. Added organic matter is burnt out in the firing process to leave the texture which is an intrinsic element of each vessel.

‘I have in mind rugged eroded surfaces, megaliths, fossils, ancient encrusted marbles and something of the quality of early Japanese ceramics - Shigaraki and Iga ware’
Paul Philp
