Peter Arscott

Peter Arscott is a painter and ceramicist who uses either grogged porcelain or stoneware fired to nearly thirteen hundred degrees. When it comes out of the kiln with its full glaze showing, you can often make out the white clay backgound behind the colours. The maker’s hand also leaves brush marks on the surface, as well as drips and smudges, leaving each piece a unique one-off. In music, especially in jazz, syncopation involves a variety of rythms which are in some way unexpected, thus making a tune off-beat. Similarly, some of Peter’s pieces have a singular lop-sided stance; improvisation takes place either in cutting out the rolled clay shapes, or later when painting oxides onto their surfaces. More art than design, here the surfaces truly are painted by a painter.
