Artist: Peter TRAVIS
Birth/Death: 1929

Title: Erotic landscape bowl

Peter Travis’s work links the body and the environment in a way that suggests the persistence of organic growth in the harshest of conditions. His ceramics reflect dry, cracked clay riverbeds, harbouring dormant life that will be re-energised with water.
