Peter Collis

Peter Collis has been a full-time professional potter since 1978.

The main focus of Peter's work is ‘shape’ and ‘surface’.

Over the years Peter's work has been primarily concerned with the wheel thrown object and a quest to throw the perfect form.

His ‘pure form’ vessels are alternatively treated with crackle glazes, lustres, Egyptian paste, textured engobes or crystalline effects that enrich the surface of his work without detracting from its form.
Peter is highly respected by his peers, both for his mastery of the potter’s wheel and his huge knowledge of glaze and firing technology.

He has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand, Japan, Canada, Singapore, Taiwan and England and is represented in collections around the world. A wide range of Peter's work, with prices starting from just $100 is currently on display at Gallery V.
