Peter Beard makes elemental forms with complex, vibrant surfaces. Working from rural Warwickshire, he follows his own exacting techniques to achieve these effects – using wax resist to create carefully controlled glaze patterns and grinding back layers of coloured slip and clay to reveal a composite of intricate textures. The varied surfaces form a cohesive style evoking the natural landscape.
