Peter Smith

Initially a research chemist, Peter Smith turned his hand to ceramics and started a pottery in Cornwall. He aims to combine the ‘feel’ of traditional earthenware with contemporary ideas and forms. The basic form is often thrown on the wheel in a heavily grogged brown clay. One can see where the potter has used his hands to shape the material, pushing and pinching the clay, the marks of making deliberately left to suggest the process.
