2018 JUROR

Paul Lewing, 2018 Juror

Paul Lewing always knew he wanted to be an artist. He started painting in oils at the age of eight, and continued into college at the University of Montana in Missoula. There he discovered clay, studying with Rudy Autio, one of America’s best known clay artists and muralists, and earned both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree. After graduate school, Paul moved to Seattle, and has been a professional clay artist there since 1972, first making functional pottery and, since 1986, working exclusively on ceramic tile. Paul is known for his painterly style of glazing, and for the wide diversity of imagery, styles and techniques he employs in his tile art. A former mule packer, horse wrangler, and hunting and fishing guide, Paul often shows his love of mountains and the outdoors in his landscape, floral, animal and fish murals. He is also widely respected for his expertise in glaze chemistry. In recent years, Paul has returned to roots in painting and is building a second reputation as a painter, working in acrylics.
