2020 Show: Peter will be displaying and selling from his studio at:

602 San Souci Dr.
Roseburg

After retiring in 2008 from a large engineering firm I returned to the Northwest to take up pottery full time. I primarily work in Raku to create large oriental vases and whimsical animal shaped vessels. I attempt to contrast form, color, and texture, often by attaching hand built sculpture to wheel thrown jars and lids. I live outside of Roseburg up the North Umpqua River and welcome visitors to my studio.

Psychoceramics

I love what fire can do to clay. And I love working with natural materials, especially wood ash. The drippy, runny effects, as well as the beading of some of the glazes on many of my pots come from wood ash, used as a flux to melt the glaze. (The trick is to make the glaze fluid—but keep it on the pot at 2230 degrees or more.) I often enhance effect with textured slip (a runny, wet clay) applied to the surface. All the pots you see here are made of white stoneware and fired in a gas kiln.

 

My studio is beside the North Umpqua River, near Roseburg, Oregon. Before becoming a potter, I was a psychologist, for nearly three decades, at Umpqua Community College—which explains the name of my pottery business: Psychoceramics.
