Peter Beard
Rufford Craft Centre, Nottinghamshire
June July 2013

This exhibition by Peter Beard was one of the now annual major ceramic exhibitions that are hosted by Rufford as part of the Earth & Fire ceramics and pottery fair. These exhibitions have become a major showcase for some of Britain's leading potters.
Peter Beard is without doubt a potter, however he is also in many ways an artist. In addition to working with clay he also has worked with glass and bronze. This exhibition featured some amazing and powerful bronzes by him. The Rufford space is not easy to show in and Peter handled the space superbly well. This exhibition was one of the best I have seen at Rufford, incredible work and superb staging. In every way Peter Beard is a remarkable talent.
