Peter Swanson - online shop

Born in 1950 Peter began working in potteries from 1967 in between travelling to various parts of the world and absorbing different cultures. In 1974 he moved to St Ives, Cornwall. Self taught he established his own pottery in 1976 working in earthenware, over the years his method of working has evolved, he now works in reduction fired stoneware and porcelain, specialising in specific varieties of individual Ash Glazes, Ash glaze means that the glaze is made up from the ashes of the burnt wood. As a tree grows it pulls many elements up through its roots. This includes oxides of metal which give the glaze their individual coloured glazes, owing to the make up of the soil. The glazes have no additional colouring oxides added at all.Peter fires the pieces in his own self built gas fired kiln of some 36 cu.ft. producing both domestic ware and individual pieces. Peter's work is sold mainly through chosen outlets in the West Country, and London. Peter's pottery at Rosudgeon,Cornwall which is well worth a visit. His domestic ware can be purchased here in his popular ash glazes. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------ALL SIZES ARE APPROXIMATE------------------------------------------
