PALUL (aka: PAUL RIDEOUT)     Email: palul@charter.net 

The need to create is a natural instinct for man. I am fortunate to have found clay, a medium that brings my passions for art and science together. I try to find and explore those qualities that have a common human appeal, universal ideas and symbols that transcend languages, locations and cultures. Like the clay itself, I expect my art to last hundreds of years.
