Pauline Montgomery is a ceramic artist living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. She fell in love with ceramics by accident when she was given a ball of clay in the first year of her degree course at the Glasgow School of Art in 1992.
After graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in Ceramic Design, life took a different direction for a while when Pauline married and had two children, all the while working in retail. However, Pauline finally purchased her own kiln and returned to making just a few years ago and has not looked back since.
The main influence on Pauline’s work is the beauty in everyday, mundane objects and she is inspired by the way our environment can evoke different emotions. Pauline explores these themes in all her work, but they can particularly be seen in her ceramic houses which are her signature pieces. Everything Pauline produces is individually hand-made using earthenware and Scottish brick clay.
