Peter Swanson (Penzance)

Post by NaomiM on April 14th 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.

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.

I was just going through some of my old images and found this and the next one, which were two pots from the exhibition of Peter's work that I staged in May 2008.

Found this at a car boot sale today, not been able to find out the maker as of yet, wondering if anyone here recognises the mark?

Thanks.
