Paul Dumetz

Paul’s work reflects a keen interest and fascination with the ‘life form’ and the ‘organism’. His fascination in both Australian fauna and mythological creatures brings his creatures to life. He states, ‘I like to convey an imagined view of life as we see it.’
His work captures the beauty, character, strength, purity, emotion and facial expression of animals and creatures which interest him.
Paul makes a range of creatures from dogs, cats, and frogs through to fanciful dragons. His pieces can be worn or simply admired. Recently he has begun to explore a range of soda fired functional ware of drinking vessels and teapots. The glazes he uses on these works emulate ‘ash glaze’ effects.
