Peter Swanson Pottery

Today, I had the great pleasure of being introduced to Peter Swanson's pottery.  I dropped off some work at the Thoresby Gallery, and the work was being set up for an exhibition that starts tomorrow and runs until the 16th of October.  The work looked so elegant in the well lit space, the glazes are magnificent.  The Cornish potter uses ash glazes, influenced by Japanese techniques.  His pots included teapots and tea bowls for a Japanese tea ceremony.  Peter has definitely made his peace with the Kiln God.  The pieces were magnificent.
