Scott Leipski / by CreativPaper

Ceramics come in an array of forms. The transformation from raw material to soft clay and eventually stoneware or porcelain has been practised for centuries. We have learnt about the lives of civilisations based on the earthenware left behind. Its importance in culture from both an artistic and utilitarian perspective cannot be ignored. Artist Scott Leipski expresses himself through ceramics. Playful yet analytical they resonate differently with each viewer. Drifting away from convention his body of work includes pieces that touch on various issues, especially the series called 'ExVoto', which comprises of 150 wall hung votives that encapsulate his childhood.
