We recently visited Paul Priest at his studio in High Wycombe. Paul’s sculptural ceramics are all individually hand-built and are full of character and humour. The direct approach to his work reflects Paul’s own restless creativity coupled with innate technical skill. Paul Priest’s work is a heady infusion of imagination, eclectic techiques and processes and an ability to create mystery and lyricism as well as humour. Paul works in partnership with Gaynor Ostinelli, which they describe as a perfect combination of talents – the perfect example of two minds working in unison. Drawing on their individual strengths, combining their talent and experience, Ostinelli and Priest have established a wide range of work which they refer to as their ‘Ceramic Endevour’.
The work of Ostinelli and Priest will feature on our new website to be launched on 1 July 2012.
