Peter lives on the edge of Dartmoor and works from a studio on the South Devon coast. His work is influenced primarily by the natural world, and in particular by a fascination with the movement and structure of wood.
Strongly influenced by rural craft traditions as well as contemporary furniture design, his work is largely hand-made in the truest sense of the word. Pieces are cleaved by hand from unseasoned logs, and shaped and sculpted using ancient techniques. These are then carefully seasoned to withstand central heating, and combined with other materials to create a unique fusion of traditional and contemporary aesthetics.
Peter’s work addresses contemporary concerns of sustainability, provenance and simplicity in design, eschewing intricate detailing in favour of pieces with a strong sculptural presence.
