Peter Lane is born in 1932. He joined the Bath Academy of Art in Corsham. After his study Peter had an extensive teaching career. At the same time he went on to develop ceramics and paintings. Initially he made wheel thrown vessel forms in earthenware and stoneware, but porcelain soon became the preferred raw material. The porcelain forms are polished with wet and dry sandpaper, the colours are created with airbrushed ceramic stains. In 1987, after more than thirty years of teaching in the UK and abroad, Peter resigned as Senior Lecturer/Fellow in the School of Education at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, to concentrate fully on his own creative work and writing books and articles about contemporary ceramics.
