Peter Beard

Peter’s work has always been inventive and he works in an intuitive way, constantly sketching and experimenting with new forms and processes.His forms are strong and simple but have complex surfaces which draw the viewer to look more closely. Each piece works as a whole, combining harmony of form and pattern.  His influence is mainly nature and landscape.

Peter uses techniques of layering glaze and painting patterns with wax between layers of glaze, the wax acting as a resist between layers. This is a meticulous process which creates complex patterns and textures within the glazes. The work is stoneware.
