What are we at home with?

I am deeply honored to be awarded the Eisteddfod Gold Medal for craft & design 2011, It is a truly amazing event for me. I feel both humble and creatively inspired to keep developing my ceramics. The plates in the Eisteddfod question what makes us feel at home or what are we at home with?

Milk Cooler

For Gathered World, an Exhibition at the Aberystwyth Art centre Peter has constructed a functional object that operates as a hybrid of old and new, employing recycled found objects that form a relationship with Peter’s hand thrown contemporary version of the cooling vessel. Life cycles are suggested. Old objects are re-vitalised and assigned new purpose, while the newly made clearly acknowledges its debt to the past through analogous form and style.
