Peter Masters

Peter Masters’ ceramic vessels evoke forms both natural and cosmic–marine organisms, rock formations, stars, planets, or asteroids. These stunning sculptures are usually made from porcelain and earthenware, many with lustrous glass glazes and precisely patterned surfaces. Masters says, “In concept, the forms transcend any recognizable species. The environments in which these forms might exist may be earthly, but certainly not domesticated. . . Their origins could indeed be cosmic–defying a satisfactory explanation and inviting lingering speculation.”Masters holds a BA in Art/Design from the University of Alberta, Canada; a Bachelor of Education in art at the University of Calgary, Canada; and a MFA in Ceramics from University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. He has taught ceramics and lectured all over the world, in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Hungary, England, and Denmark.
