John Parker

Peter's forms and aesthetic, of the stark and the industrial, have always put him out of step with the craft-based, organic-oriented, mainstream of NZ pottery. Peter owes more to the philosophy of the European design movements of de Stijl and the Bauhaus, than to the NZ preoccupation with the East and Zen. He is very concerned with the presentation and display of the objects and prefer to group pieces as clusters where the matt and shiny surfaces and the negative and positive spaces can interact.
