FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association

Peter Powning

Peter Powning is one of Canada’s premier sculptors. Peter first became known for his commercially successful raku ware but then branched out, combining many different materials — bronze, wood, stone, glass — to create pieces that are evocative and sensitive. He has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, won many awards, and created public art installations in addition to writing and lecturing extensively. Peter’s work displays an almost alchemical transformation of materials, and impeccable craftsmanship. In recent years Peter has been involved in starting a local culture centre with a ceramics studio as a central component. He will discuss his public art applying for, designing, and project managing. There are as well many technical areas of making that are of interest. One of his keen interests in recent years has been press moulding using found objects.
