David Peters has committed himself to mastering his own ceramic technique. Harvesting strictly from the local areas around south west Montana, he has created his own style and approach to wood fire pots. Even before David, ceramic art or the human race, the clay David has chosen to work with was becoming the material it is today. Davids relationship with his material shows his understanding and respect for the geological history of the clay he harvests. Taking time to dig, mill and form a workable material that is unique to his work translates loudly in his final product. Like the geological process of the moving earth that creates the clay, Davids process is a slow moving, risky process with uncertain outcomes. Clay documents David's unique process from start to finish. Capturing the spirit of an artist dedicated to firing work unique to Montana and contemporary art culture.
