Paul Harrison Taylor.
Born in London, England July 12 1957.
Left structured education at 17 with little experience of Art and none
at all of Sculpture.
Following his redundancy, one of many in Thatcherite Britain, he decided,
despite parental misgivings to go to Art School full- time.
The traditional aspect of the teaching and ethos of the college instilled further the essence of sculpture he demanded; the stress on the "sculptors' craft", the insistence on the search for honesty and commitment that continues until today to be vital in the making of PHT's art.
Leaving in 1984 he decided to leave the polluted and grim streets of London to the Borders of Scotland.
Coming to Israel for a holiday he met Muriel Eisenberg an astrologer, fell in love, married and moved to Jerusalem, Israel in 1988.
He quickly found a studio and continued to make sculpture. offered a teaching post, PHT accepted to commence a sculpture course at Stav Pisull and at The High School of Arts, Jerusalem, introducing the varied elements of Sculpture to the youth of the city, as well as taking on an additional teaching position at the Israel Museum.
In 1997 PHT founded "create - A - space", a large studio in the light industrial area of Talpiot, Jerusalem. Where he continues to develop his Art ,as well as teaching sculpture in stone carving, clay and steel construction.
