Peter Cuthbertson

Ceramics

My work is influenced by a combination of the form of the local landscape and the marks left in it by our ancestors and the desire to make functional objects particularly those associated with food. I enjoy the process of making but also being able further to affect the work by firing with wood to colour any unglazed surface. I work mainly in stoneware clays to produce cups , jugs, bowls and plates as well as casseroles.

Wood Engravings & Sculpture

I live and work in my native Sussex and am infused with the beauty and romance of this small corner of our country. I am constantly inspired by the world around me. To be able to engage in the landscape through my engravings deepens my appreciation and love of the world I am lucky enough to inhabit.

Wood Engraving has become a much cherished outlet for me. I fell in love with the medium even before I knew what it was. Leslie Benenson's work illustrating "Rudyard Kipling- A Sussex Anthology" was my first encounter. And a chance meeting with the accomplished, engraver Sybella Styles led me to classes with Diana Bloomfield.

Wood engraving is one of the simplest and most exquisite forms of printmaking. The print is made by engraving the reversed design into the mirror-smooth surface of a block of end grain box wood.
