With a selective library of forms – tri-legged, squat or tall vessels; solid, chunky, chains, ‘blobs’ reminiscent of fungi, stones – Peter brings decades of technical mastery and intuition to bear, making each new work entirely unique. Sometimes painstakingly building up a complex internal structure through which a molten metal outer skin will flow, sometimes working directly with prepared moulds, he results of these lost wax castings reveal the characteristics of metal in an entirely fresh way.
