In Paul Scott’s hands, these domestic ceramics mutate into subversive comments on our life and times. His expert manipulation of familiar motifs like the Willow Pattern gives his work special resonance and broad appeal, such as warning signs for radioactivity tucked into the border of the Willow Pattern, or jet planes streaking across rural landscapes.

This appropriation of traditional patterns as vehicles for socio-political commentary has made Paul Scott’s work unmistakeable.
