Solo Exhibition by Peter Beard in London: 19 September to 12 October 2019


Discover new work by Peter Beard, Through a solo exhibition from 19 September–12 October at The Contemporary Ceramics Centre in London whowelcome Peter Beard back to the gallery. Based in Warwickshire and exhibiting in the UK and internationally since 1975, Peter creates vessels and sculptural works in his own wholly distinctive style – works pairing confident forms with complex surfaces.

Peter uses throwing, slab building and coiling techniques to create these shapes, which range from bowls and vase-like vessels to disc forms both flat and dimensional. The silhouettes are strong and elemental, borrowing from tradition while remaining new, and provide a substantial canvas to reveal the intricate surface effects developed by the maker.

For some of his surface designs, Peter uses wax resist to create carefully controlled glaze patterns; for others, he grinds back many thin layers of coloured slip and clay to reveal a matrix of textures. There’s much to explore in these varied surfaces, which altogether form a cohesive style evoking the natural landscape.

Through this exhibition, featuring more than 60 works, Peter reveals new explorations in form and scale, including hollow and wavy forms and 60-centimetre-high vessels, as well as a prize-awarded work from Oldenburg International Ceramics Fair (pictured directly below).
