Peter Thompson




The themes within the artist’s work are often linked to the concept of navigation and identity. The artist creates work inspired by nature and natural forms using surface pattern and texture to create work with ceramics, textiles and print processes. Peter was born and educated in Jersey and began his artistic career as a ceramic artist at Jersey Pottery. From ceramic decoration, his interests in surface design evolved into completing his degree at Huddersfield University, during which, he studied a BSc in Textile design for Fashion and Interiors. Once graduated Peter returned to the island to begin a career teaching textiles and print at Highlands College. As well as teaching, Peter continues to be a ceramic decorator for a local ceramicist and has had three solo exhibitions to date, as well as multiple collaborations with other designers.
