Paul Wearing holds both BA and MA degrees in ceramics from Cardiff, has been awarded a setting up grant from the Arts Council of Wales, won Welsh Artist of the Year and exhibited widely throughout the U.K.

Paul's work is inspired by nature and landscapes and embraces contrasts of control and chance within the making process. Textures that manifest naturally on surfaces within diverse urban and rural landscapes, are fundamental to his practice and he expresses his relationship to these through the coil-built ceramic sculptural vessel form and glazed surface. It is this relationship between the slower emerging cycles of nature and the making process leading to alchemical developments within the kiln that underpins his work.

In 2014 Paul was awarded a further grant from the Arts Council of Wales for the development of his creative practice.
