Peter comes from a family of professional potters who ran the popular Castle Hedingham Pottery in North Essex. After working in graphic design for eight years, Peter changed direction in 1994 and decided to follow his interest for pottery and ceramics.

Peter started creating unique pieces with his good eye for detail, this can be enjoyed in his domestic ware thrown on the potters' wheel. The surface texture and character of the clay are enhanced through his use of complimentary glazes. Peter now works and teaches part time from his own well equipped studio in the market town of Halstead in North Essex.

His friendly classes are designed to encourage beginners as well as challenge more advanced students. Peter loves sharing the traditional craft of pottery; teaching hand building techniques and throwing on the wheel. The creative atmosphere within the studio encourages his students to design unique pieces, developing their own individual style.
