Paul Wynand was born Elberfeld 30th January 1879. He studied initially in Berlin before returning to his native town of Elberfeld, where he attended the Kunstgewerbeschule from 1900 to 1903. He studied briefly with Rodin in Paris in 1904 and then taught at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Elberfeld, from 1904 to 1905, before taking over from Ernst Barlach as teacher at the Königliche Keramische Fachschule in Hohr, from May 1905 to the 30th April 1910, where he lived at Rheinstraße 37. From May 1910 to 1911 he worked in Rome and then returned to Berlin, where he aquired a flat at Xantenerstraße 10, and worked as a freelance sculptor. In 1912 he was living in a large house at Caspar-Theyß-Straße 12. Meanwhile, he supplied designs for Reinhold Merkelbach between 1908 and 1912; often only sketchily outlined, these designs were translated into ceramic forms by the modeller Carl Mehlem. Leaving his occupation of sculpture, between 1934 and 1945 he was a professor in the Institute for Applied Arts in Berlin. He died Berlin - Wannsee 3rd February 1956. 

He designed steins for: 
(N.B. A good number of steins produced for Steinzeugwerke were probably designed for, and produced by, R. Merkelbach & S.P. Gerz, independently, prior to 1910).
