Peter’s knowledge of glaze and firing techniques merge to create a bounty of forms and tactile finishes that inspire respect, and beg to be touched.
Some pieces, like his Waka, are almost frightening with their intense colors and seemingly fragile edges. Other pieces, like his vases, are models of simplicity and elegance.

including Auckland, Singapore, Taipei, the US and British Columbia.
