Peter Lane

USA

Peter Lane is a New York-based ceramic artist who specialises in large-scale architectural installations, monumental furniture, and decorative work. His imagery evokes the nature of clay at its most brutal, primal, and sensual, utilising rough-hewn and hand-wrought direct techniques that take advantage of the character of the earth itself. Working directly on the concrete floor of his 10,000 square foot Brooklyn studio and showroom, Peter and his expert assistants create the sculptures: mixing, throwing, pounding and stomping up to eight tons of clay at a time. While he takes his inspiration from artists like Diego Giaccometti, Alberto Burri and Paul Evans, Lane is equally influenced by his passion for the earth, for the processes of nature, and the idea of human connection. He has been fortunate to work with so many excellent architects and designers who have specified his work in their projects, integrating site-specific designs in their luxurious interiors and gardens. Some of his clients include Peter Marino, Chahan Minassian, Jamie Bush, Joe Nahem, and Emily Summers, to name a few.
