The work of Peter Wills, a professional potter since 1989, has been evolving over the years within the context of attention to detail, balanced form/decoration, and passion – all of which he believes are crucial.

“Inspiration for me comes from simple things; pots from ancient China to modern Europe; the looseness, freedom and life of Bizen wares, the wonderful colours, textures and forms of Lucie Rie’s work; the inverted profile of a hat, a blackbird singing outside my bedroom window.”

“I aim for balanced form, attention to detail and life; I would love the ability to produce pots of a calibre that would make people catch their breath – however  for now, if I can occasionally stir the heart, I’ll be content.”  

Peter was commissioned by Downing Street to make individual pieces for visiting heads of state attending the UK G20 summit, a well deserved salute to the mastery of his craft.
