Following a career in medical research, Peter Humpherson set up his studio near York almost 20 years ago to make wheel-thrown vessels and sculptural forms in stoneware and porcelain. In establishing his own style, his main influences have been the potters, David Lloyd Jones, Hans Coper, Chris Keenan and Takeshi Yasuda. His work reflects a deep interest in the colours and textures found on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, which he has been visiting regularly for more than 40 years. His background in research has led Peter to develop the effects of glazes on different clay bodies, giving him a range of muted colours and textures that mirror the landscape. Firing his work in both electric and flame kilns, Peter incorporates techniques such as using copper and cobalt compounds within the glaze, which produces greens, turquoises and blues, as seen in his ‘Sanna’ bowls.
