Peter McNamee

Ceramicist

Peter McNamee makes hand thrown reduction fired stoneware at the Standen Pottery. He is inspired by pottery of the Leach tradition and Japanese ceramics.

Peter often uses local materials such as ashes from trees felled on the Standen estate in his glazes. He makes pots for people to use and enjoy in their homes and is particularly interested in using the potter’s wheel to investigate the vessel form as a means of personal and cultural expression.
