British studio potter Peter Sparrey (b1967, Worcestershire) first discovered clay and the potters wheel at school. It was this early introduction that triggered his ambition to become a potter, and he has been potting full-time since leaving school at 16. After serving an apprenticeship at Guernsey Pottery, Channel Islands, he established his first professional studio in 1987. He now lives with his wife and young family in Normandie, France.
For the past 22 years Peter Sparrey has produced finely thrown individual pieces of work using stoneware and porcelain clay bodies, decorated with high-fired traditional Far Eastern glazes. His pots can be found in major public and private collections worldwide and are regularly shown alongside work by the the likes of Bernard Leach, Lucie Rie and Michael Cardew, founders of the 20th century ceramics movement. Peterís work is exhibited extensively in leading galleries in London and throughout the UK.
