Porcelain Sake Set 2012
Since 2008 Peter has been using Southern Ice porcelain for its qualities of translucency and whiteness in the construction of vessels for serving sake 'tokkuri' and for drinking sake 'guinomi'.
This translucent Southern Ice porcelain sake set created in 2012 consists of a flask, Arc, and three cups, Orbit, Wave and Cone. They are slip cast and glazed with ice blue Qingbai or rare earth glazes. The exterior surface is unglazed and hand polished giving a very tactile quality with a slight sheen. The set is also available in a dark metallic tenmoku glaze.
Tripod Guinomi 2011
This sake set is based on the form of the tripod. The Southern Ice porcelain is sometimes mixed with oxides to create an organic, textured surface.
Biomimesis, an installation of slip cast porcelain sculptures, was selected for inclusion in an exhibition entitled White at the State Library of Queensland in 2010. The exhibition was organised by the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Artisan Gallery and featured work in porcelain by artists from Australia and Lombardy, Italy.
This installation of wheel-thrown ceramic sculptures illuminated with fibre optic cables and LEDs received an award of merit from the Design Institute of Australia in the Queensland Design Awards and was exhibited in ’Design Excellence in Queensland’ at the Queensland Art Gallery in June 2006.
Peter maintains a collection of his own and other artists' work at pinterest.com/ceramicon to serve as an educational resource of techniques and styles in international and mainly contemporary ceramics.
