Daily Inspiration: Meet Paul lowe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paul lowe.

Hi Paul, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I was born and raised in Oslo, Norway in a very creative household. I always loved working with my hands.

Started to as a florist, then as a food and prop stylist and eight years ago, I discovered ceramics.

It was love at first touch.

I just took a class in order to make some plates for a shoot I was doing.

It was such a cool experience, I could actually make a plate…wow.

Since then, I have been slowly working on my skills in ceramics.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The struggle is that ceramics is not an exact science. It means that stuff can crack, firing goes wrong, glaze comes out in strange colors.

It’s all up to the kiln goods.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I mostly do housewares. Bowls, vases, candlesticks, etc.

I have a very rustic approach to it, I want you to be able to see that it’s handmade.

Perfection is so boring to me and it’s not something I stride for.

I’m known for rustic simple pieces in white, black or brown.

Not really into colors in my work.

You can definitely see the nordic inspiration in my work with simple yet rustic lines and shapes.

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
Ceramics doesn’t really change that much. There are trends but it’s still wet clay and your hands.
