Paul Wood’s sculptural assemblages combine rejected ceramic objects, kitchen crockery and pre-loved porcelain animals in uncanny and surprising ways. The fusion of these otherwise unrelated items create playful narratives that transcend mere nostalgia and become small monuments to their curious past. Paul’s reimagining of domestic crockery of a bygone era, create masterful compositions of form, from a variety of angles.
Paul Wood’s work has been acknowledged through significant awards such as the Sydney Myer Ceramic Emerging Artist Award (2010), Australia Council for the Arts Barcelona Residency (2010) and the Manningham Victorian Ceramic Art Award (2011). His work has been included in major exhibitions including at ACCA, Melbourne and Icheon World Ceramic Centre Korea.
