Peter Bodenham

Ceramicist

Peter Bodenham is a potter and visual artist. He trained in Ceramics and 3D in the mid 1980s at Camberwell School of Art. In the mid 1990s he completed an MA in Fine Art at UWIC, Cardiff. Peter lives and runs a studio in Cardigan, West Wales and works at Bath Spa University as a Senior Lecturer within the Ceramics department. He is an experienced educator, curator and external examiner working within various universities.

Informing and framing his work are a range of sources, a personal sense of place, locus and the connection between the maker and the land. Journeys and mini adventures on foot, traversing the shoreline and seascape feed the work on a direct level. Images, motifs and gestural marks scratched into the surface of the pots can be seen as direct traces of a phenomenological experience.
