Featured Maker: Peter Bodenham

Our Featured Maker from July – October 2018 is Peter Bodenham.

Peter Bodenham makes functional ceramics that are evocative of the land and seascape they are drawn from. Informing and framing his pots are a range of linked sources, a sense of place and locus, the vernacular, alongside formal design craft concerns. Journeys and mini adventures on foot, often traversing the shoreline, feed the work on a direct level. Local clays, wood and seaweed ashes are incorporated into clay bodies and glazes referencing in the broadest terms the ‘art of enquiry’. Motifs and gestural marks brushed on the pots can be seen as direct traces of his phenomenological experience of a sense of place, where he grew up and continues to live. He trained in Ceramics and 3D in the mid 1980s at Camberwell School of Art. Peter lives and works in the village of St.Dogmaels near Cardigan in West Wales, he works part time as a senior lecturer at Bath Spa University.

All work is for sale – Collectorplan (interest free purchase scheme) is available.
