Paul Rowbottom

Paul Rowbottom Sculpture, Ceramics, Kiln Builder

I trained as a sculptor at Leicester Polytechnic and Les Arts Decoratif, Strasbourg. A
major influence on my working practice was a period spent with artists of the
Tengenenge Sculptors Community, Zimbabwe in 1992. Since then I have undertaken
various commissions. The detail from the sculpture above featured on the cover of a
C.D. which was distinguished by a double platinum award. I am active in creating tile
panels in school and community settings. A recent project has been the design and
sympathetic restoration of a 1930’s Art Deco cinema: The Rex,
I am drawn to the possibilities of combining sculptural form with manufacturing
processes, both traditional and digital. Elegant simplicity of form and the use of
appropriate materials are essential concerns in my work. My stone carving and
ceramics use traditional methods and attempt to create work which is both
contemporary in feel yet reaches back to an ancient heritage.
I continue to carve stone and work in a range of ceramic processes, while lecturing in
sculpture and ceramics part- time.
