Colin Rennie studied at Edinburgh College of Art and taught at Wolverhampton, before deciding to fully concentrate on developing his own work. This was assisted by a 12 months Artist in Residence at the University of Sunderland, supported by an Arts Council England grant. Colin sprang to national attention through his shortlisting for the Jerwood Prize and its subsequent UK exhibition tour. Presently he is the University of Sunderland’s Programme Leader for BA Glass & Ceramics. His work is in the V &A collection and later this year he will be taking up a residency in Sars Potteries in France.
