Sam Scott

I have been working with clay since 1968.I grew up in Seattle and went to the University of Washington where I had Robert Sperry, Patti Warashina, and Howard Kottler as instructors. After receiving my BFA in Ceramics, in 1974, I set up my studio in Shoreline just north of Seattle.

My work has been shown at many galleries and museums including The Smithsonian Institution, Bellevue Art Museum, Whatcom Museum of History and Art. I have had pieces published in various books and magazines, such as Robin Hoppers "Making Marks","500 Cups" and "500 Pitchers".My work has also been featured in "Clay Times", "Ceramics Monthly", and "Bon Appetite. While pursuing my work as a studio potter I have coninued to teach and do workshops. I have taught at The University of Washington, and Everett Community College, and I am presently an instructor at Shoreline Community College and Seward Park Clay Studio.

Over the years I have primarily worked with porcelain on the potters wheel. I have developed two distinct stylistic approaches. In one I use overglaze bruswork on a clear glaze with naturalistic decoration to embellish and enhance the surface. In the other I utilize a black matte glaze with absract and biomorphic designs emphasizing a black/white or matte/glossy contrast.
