Hello & Welcome

Paul Cummins

Paul is an inspirational ceramic artist whose reputation has grown exponentially over the last few years, with a number of high-profile commissions both regionally and, more recently, nationally and internationally.

His bold, exuberantly organic flowers and vibrant glazes, combined with the raw presence of steel and wire, deliver arresting results.

Drawing on a myriad of inspirations and subconscious prompts from his life, experiences and his previous career as an architect abroad, Paul’s work is informed by a detailed understanding for aesthetic form and holds a commanding visual authority.

Over the last three years Paul has been commissioned to create large-scale installations for the Duke of Devonshire’s Chatsworth House, Derby Royal Hospital, Althorp Estate, Blenheim Palace , the Conran Shop, and most recently the internationally acclaimed ‘Seas of Red’ installation at the Tower of London to commemorate the
100th anniversary of the beginning of the Great War.
