Olivier Peter-Contesse - Pottery

I'm a Potter, part of the Sultan Woodfire group. There are 12 of us, firing stoneware and porcelain to 2300 f., in a 100 c.f. woodfired kiln...usually around 30 hours. 

The work is functional and sculptural. I am astonished at our creators creativity, and am often guilty of copying what He particular, bones and concretions.

Recently, I have been making crocks with a twist. One of my students, Jack Emmons, has filmed the process in my studio, with a drone. You can see his utube video at:
