Reshaping the world through craft

  • • Peter has over 30 years of experience
  • • He feels crafts enable us to reshape the world
  • • He is passionate about passing on his knowledge

Peter Fink may not have a degree in his craft, but he does have three decades of experience. His passion for working with clay was sparked during a ceramics workshop in the Eifel mountains, Germany. “I was able to witness a traditional salt firing at its peak. The mixture of tradition and technique, the art of creating intricately glazed ceramics just from wood, salt and earth in a very simple way fascinated me so much that I wanted to follow this path to see where it would lead me," he says. Thirty years later, Peter has become an internationally renowned ceramicist whose expertise and understanding of the material are often sought out by others looking for help in realising their ideas.
