I do not consider myself as either a sculptor or a potter. My sole
interest is in developing new and original forms of architectural
ornamentation, an expressive art form that died in the beginnings of
the last century. Artists such as Lewis Sullivan, Victor Horta, Antonio
Gaudi and Joseph Maria Joulol found their work superceded by a new
socialist architecture that came to be known as the International Style.

Peter King moved to Pensacola from Tarpon Springs in 1970 to attend the
University of West Florida. In 1973, he graduated with honors, gaining
degrees in both Philosophy and Religion. After graduating, Peter
remained in the Pensacola area and continued to work in construction
trades that had put him through college. Having been bitten by the
pottery bug while at the University of West Florida, Peter decided to
apply his interest in ceramics to the building industry.
