Originally from Macon, GA, Greg Scott completed a BFA at East Carolina University in Greenville,
NC. He is
a member of Carolina Clay Matters and loves to be involved in community education. Formerly an
designer in the digital studio at Paramount Show Services, Greg continues to develop new ideas that
emerged from his experience there and is in the process of exploring the boundaries between drawing,
painting, and ceramic media.
The vessels Greg are presenting represent the journey of searching for the mysteries of dedication,
and inspiration through art experiences and process. The works embody the notions of ritual, change
transformation that are present in all forms of matter and life. The atmosphere of the kiln and the
the fire are conveyed by rich lustrous surfaces combined with the rawness of the native clays that are
brushed under and over the glaze, giving these vessels the ability to convey to the viewer the constant
change that is the ceramic process and an analogy for the changes that are life.

simple shapes with rich surfaces that unite in a continuous flowing contour to best capture the essence
my three dimensional expressions in clay.
