Scott is an artist best known for his research into ceramics and
print. He creates individual pieces that blur the boundaries between fine art, craft and design
is diverse, so as well as making individual artworks, installations
and artefacts for exhibition, he also works to commission, writes,
teaches and curates.
Research has always played a key role in all
aspects of his work - from investigating the technical methodologies
of print transfers to the synthesis of historical form and contemporary
artefact embodied in his Cumbrian Blue(s) artworks. He is currently investigating old conservation methods of repairing ceramic forms - stapling and wiring. In addition new digital research is examining the detail of nineteenth century ceramic tableware prints, and the visual language of original sources - usually engraved book illustration. New artworks in material and digital form are planned.
He was appointed Professor 2 at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) in July 2011
