Biography / CV of Paul Hardcastle

Paul Hardcastle`s Biography
I trained originally in Ceramics at Farnham in Surrey. With access to many leading potters I found the period to be stimulating and enlightening. It also gave me time to think seriously about the direction that my work should take.

The course had an Architectural element which I identified as my particular area of interest. Working on scales larger than myself using components smaller was fascinating. Finding inspiration in portraiture and human form, the incredible variety and complexity of nature, the natural sculpture and scale of our landscape all contributed to the direction my work has taken.

Blending sculptural and figurative relief into tiles, murals and mosaic, is still a joy. Rich colours and surface texture, vibrant design and a sense of scale all have their part to play.

Artist Statement of Paul Hardcastle

Paul Hardcastle`s Personal statement
Born small then grew and then grew some more. Lumbering about, a bit of a Brontosaurus, I take time to churn around the inspirational food of life before creating. I did not choose art it chose me, I chose the ceramic.

Ceramic is a wonderful media to work in with a timeless quality and a feeling of connection to the earth, it gives you a few surprises on the way.

Blending sculptural and figurative relief into tiles, murals and mosaic, is still a joy. Rich colours and surface texture, vibrant design and a sense of scale all have their part to play. Over the years I have worked using many different media forms producing sculpture, murals and features for hotels, restaurants and bars, the theatre and exhibition sets, also numerous private commissions.

For the future I am always interested in new projects.

"All in nature is beautiful"
Auguste Rodin
Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
