Peter Barnett

Log-in to Favorite

Although once primarily an abstract painter, Peter Barnett has expanded into ceramics. His artistic vision now encompasses three dimensions. With his own special technique, which is similar to origami, he cuts up sheets of clay, which he then folds into organic shapes. Some of the vibrant color patterns he used in his paintings have found their way onto his pots. Other ceramics are a testament to his playful experimentation with form and glaze. He also continues painting. He creates skins of paint by mixing paint colors, and pouring and splattering paint on glass. The textures and patterns are made with brushes, rollers, sticks and other objects. The skins are then combined with others on canvases to become unique images.
