Artists Statement

Artists Statement

The perfect opportunity to see two heads working as one. Drawing on our individual talents and strengths we have established a range of work that is both popular and collectable.
Inspiration is drawn from human animal and bird form on an ever changing basis. We use texture, rhythm and colour into the clay to convey movement presence and humour into the work, these qualities being all important in any piece.
Our workshops and demonstrations have proved immensely popular, educational but fun, embracing all our making techniques.

Background History

Background History

Paul Priest studied graphic design, illustration and photography, working in this facet of the art world for a short time before realising ‘the mistake’.

Work with ceramic sculpture became my obsession as a result of attending an adult-ed pottery course and the subsequent establishment of my own studio.  

Now a professional member of the CPA and other societies it was some six years ago I met Gaynor Ostinelli, and over the following period together we have developed our working partnership.  Still creating work individually as well as jointly we have moved to exhibiting our work in galleries and festivals as well as holding demonstrations and workshops.
