Stoneware Tenmoku mug wood fired with an iron rich glaze. All Peter's work is fired in a wood fuelled tunnel kiln, with firings usually lasting 5 days. The protracted firing has caused the iron rich glaze to become iridescent and parts of the mug have an almost metallic sheen to it as a result.  

 

Dimensions: Mug: h-9cm x w-11.5cm
                       

As all products are handmade sizes and colour may vary slightly. Each mug is sold individually.

Peter makes simple porcelain and stoneware pieces designed for everyday use. They are inspired by ancient Chinese and Korean celadon ceramics, and also by mid-century Scandinavian domestic ware. His aim is simple, to make beautiful pots that well designed and a joy to use.  

While at art college in Belfast, encountering ceramics steered him towards pottery. Time spent working with Nic Collins, Rob Barron, and a summer spent at Winchcombe Pottery, furthered his interest in functional ceramics, and particularly wood fired pots, both ancient and contemporary.

Having completed the DCCoI Ceramic Skills and and Design course in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, Peter has settled in rural Devon, where he works alongside Svend Bayer at Kigbeare Studios.
