Peter  Wareing

Peter trained in 3D Design at Manchester Polytechnic in the early 70s. Following a career teaching art in Birmingham schools he took early retirement during 2006 to concentrate solely on his ceramics. He now lives in the historic town of Whithorn which is situated in South-West Scotland. His work consists mainly of classic thrown forms illustrated with imagery inspired by the local landscape and coastline. Peter uses his own expressive take on the ancient technique of tube lining combined with washes of underglaze colours to create a unique colourful illustration on each piece. He has exhibited his work widely in a variety of galleries including The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne, the Kunsthuis Art Gallery in North Yorkshire, the Rendezvous Gallery in Aberdeen and several local galleries. He is a participant in the open studio event “Spring Fling” which is held each May across the whole of Dumfries & Galloway. Peter does take commissions. He normally requires at least 10 weeks’ notice subject to item required. He produces thrown forms including large platters over 50cm in diameter.
