Peter Sparrey was born in Worcestershire and first discovered clay and the potters wheel at school, aged eleven. It was this early introduction that triggered his ambition to become a potter.

Peter has been potting full-time since leaving school at sixteen and now lives with his family in Herefordshire. 

Peter produces finely thrown individual pieces of work using stoneware and porcelain clay bodies, decorated with traditional high-fired Far Eastern glazes including chun, tenmoku, celadon and copper red.
