Peter began throwing pots at the Ontario College of Art back in 1993, and though he has never been a production potter, he has been playing with clay ever since. Always striving for his latest creations to be his best, Peter is consistently looking for new techniques to try, or new shapes to experiment with, to craft quality, unique work.
Throughout his entire life Peter spent all of his summers in Northern Ontario, and the beauty of the north has inspired much of his work. Through the use of natural colours, and textures, to the images and motifs on his work, Peter always returns to where he feels most comfortable- inspired by the lakes, rocks, and trees of the north.
In the past year Peter has focused on combining and layering of glazes to create a variety of new looks and textures for his creations.
And for the Images Studio Tour in 2021, Peter offers a variety of functional kitchen wares (including serving trays, bowls, mugs, pitchers, tea pots and more), as well as his innovative ikebana vases, the bizarre but delightful woodland creatures, the large outdoor totem sculptures, and new this year, his handcrafted bird houses, and garden pots inspired by trees.
Please come on out and rediscover the artists on the Images Studio Tour as we finally return on the Thanksgiving Weekend 2021!
