Peter R J Davies

Ceramics Drawing Tuition

Peter trained at Wimbledon School of Art and later, after a career in the Civil Service, at Buckinghamshire College of Higher Education graduating in Ceramics with Glass. Drawings are cross-referenced in his workbooks and the main recurrent theme is of containers - jugs, bowls, vases with an initially unexpected family likeness to Anatolian and Cycladic wares. Peter recently retired from years of teaching art in Turkey and China; their ceramics with influences from Japan and Korea combine to develop strong tactile and visual pleasures that I wish people to experience in my work. I hope there is also a sense of fun and the unexpected to give added pleasure.
