Collection: Peter Slight

Peter Slight is a ceramicist producing slip-cast and hand built work with a mid-century modern, Brutalist and Cycladic influence, from his studio near Worthing, on the South coast of the UK.

Peter's ceramics are timeless, enigmatic and tactile exploring texture, simplified forms and shapes.

The slip-casts, which are produced in small batches and limited editions, are made in earthenware and finished with an off white matt glaze.

Peter studied illustration at the University of Wolverhampton and graduated in 2000. He then produced freelance illustrations for a variety of clients before exhibiting paper-cut pictures and mixed media models across the UK. He recently discovered a passion for ceramics, which he have been making and selling since 2018.

Peter's work is influenced by mid-century modern design, Cycladic art and brutalism, and is inspired by the work of sculptors Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, and ceramicist John Maltby.

His ceramics have been selected and stocked in the Barbican’s shop, specifically in conjunction with the Jean Dubuffet : Brutal Beauty exhibition, The Wallace Collection’s shop in conjunction with the Henry Moore ‘Helmet Heads’ exhibition and also the Towner Eastbourne in conjunction with the Barbara Hepworth Art & Life exhibition.
