Upcoming exhibition presenting a new collection by Peter Collis
Peter Collis is one of the most recongnisable names in Pottery in New Zealand, with stunning pieces held in public and private collections and homes nationwide. Additionally, Peter has had a multitiude of exhibitions internationally, including New York, Australia, Dubai and the Pacific Islands.
Peter & Julie are also extremely well-known as the duo behind the serving platters and many of New Zealand’s top restaurants, working with 11 of the top 15 restaurants also, as well as many hotels, boutique restaurants and cafes and vineyards.
After having been busy with that over the last few years, it is delightful to be able to launch a new collection “Stacked” at Artform on the 23rd of November.
Consisting of ‘round things’, as Peter says, in a variety of shapes and sizes, the crystal-glass glazed objects are playfully stacked into sculptures, changing the nature of the items from a functional object, to a stunning piece of art.
Accompanying the exhibition will be guests artists HOCH + GREEN, an Auckland based duo interested in telling a message dear to their heart through breathtaking photography. The balance of “Symphony of Movement” is one of fragility of nature; albeit the eye is taken in to the sheer beauty of the image, the story and meaning behind the thin filament of the petals is one resembling the thin line we are walking with nature - the nature that is the star of the photo.
