Scott McNeil’s figures are generally formed in fine stoneware clay, sometimes embellished with a dark patina after firing. The immediacy and raw complexity of the media has become enduringly attractive, both a departure and a continuation of earlier ideas explored on canvas.

I feel the clay to be a highly suggestive body that brings about, through physical, conceptual and spontaneous negotiations, an animated, and structurally cohesive form.”
