Peter Swanson, Penzance

Post by NaomiM on Sun Apr 14, 2013 6:08 pm

Pair of mugs and cream jug by Peter Swanson.
Mugs stamped PS. Jug stamped Swanson.
Bought them from a collector of studio pottery who'd bought these direct from the pottery a number of years ago, and said Swanson was experimenting with natural ash glazes at the time.

Pretty glazes! Is he a southern potter?

Of course, recognise his stuff now. One of the anagama gnarly types

Yes and no.

Peter has been making a living from potting in Cornwall since 1974 and much of his work is gas fired reduced stoneware, where he uses locally sourced materials for his glazes such as clay, rock dust and tree/plant ash. Around 2007 he built a small anagama wood-fired kiln and does produce "gnarly" pots but the bulk of his work is still gas fired.

Well he is from the South!

In David Binch's Fellowship of Fire exhibition it was Peter's anagama work that was shown but back in 2011 David staged a solo exhibition of Peter's pots covering all aspects of his work, as I have done in the past.
