Here are some pictures of Peter Smith taken during his demo.
Peter came to give a lecture and demo when Nic and I were students at Derby College, back in the early eighties and completely turned our heads.
His influence has stuck with us both ever since, so it was wonderful to see and hear him again.
He uses a lot of grit in his clay - his clay has similar properties to the brick clay blend that I use.
He uses pipettes with rubber tubes attached to suck up slip, then expels the wet slip in a free-flowing, but considered manner, across the surface of the pot.
I admire the fact that he has no intention of making his work 'pretty'. As he maintained when applying his asymmetrical decoration, 'it's not my responsibility to make people feel comfortable'. Love it
