Finlay Cramb is an award winning Scottish artist, traditionally trained in Printmaking with a 1st Class Hons Degree in Painting from ECA. His fine art prints have been featured in national press and he’s worked in fields as diverse as storyboard artist for Bafta nominated short film ‘The Island’, corporate branding and product design for ‘AICR’ international cancer charity and provided artwork for heavy metal band ‘Firebrand SuperRock’ as featured in ‘Metal Hammer’ and ‘Powerplay’ magazines, to name a few. Fin continues to exhibit his printwork and is currently enjoying fulfilling a lifetime ambition to work in the comic book industry.
My current work explores and interprets languages of ornament from different cultures, places and periods in history. From my Edinburgh studio I create intricate and colourful ceramic objects that celebrate this fascination for ornament and pattern, using clay as a canvas on which to build richly drawn and layered surfaces of inlaid line, glaze colour and enamel decals.
Beyond the studio I develop projects and commissions that respond to people and places, using my interests as a platform from which to engage with new environments. This approach has lead to work in varied and sometimes unexpected settings, from an English Tudor banqueting room in Sheffield, to a country home on the Scottish Island of Raasay.
