Peter trained at Manchester and Birmingham Polytechnics. After a long teaching career, he took early retirement to concentrate on his ceramics. He has exhibited with the Midlands Potters’ Association, Potsfest and Ceramics Southeast. Peter was elected a Member of the RBSA in 2008. The decoration is achieved by drawing a tube lined image on to the bisque fired pots which are then painted with washes of under glaze colours. A transparent glaze is applied and the work is fired to 1120c. The images are derived from photographs of woodland and sea shores. These are often combined with life drawings. The results are evocative and imply a narrative. Influences come from Japanese prints, Egon Shiele and Gustav Klimt.
