Peter Lange (New Zealand)
Peter Lange, creator of the world first brick boat and a leading figure in the craft/object art sector, has been awarded by Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship this year.
Peter Lange has worked in ceramics for more than 30 years and has been director of Auckland Studio Potters Center since 1997.  He changes his approach to clay all the time.  Thirty years ago he started working in the "Leach" tradition throwing high-fired domestic-ware, but has at times embraced earthenware, slip-casting, salt-glazing, brick sculpture, and experimental kiln-firings.  He enjoys illusion, irony and the unexpected?
Peter Lange has worked, taught and exhibited in New Zealand and throughout the world.  Highlights in recent years include being an official demonstrator at the 2002 Aomori Wood-fire Festival in Japan, and being selected to take part in a terracotta and brick symposium in Eskisehir, Turkey in 2003.  In 1997, he taught at the Dubai Art Center in the United Arab Emirates.
Peter Lange has twice received the Merit Award at the Fletcher Challenge Art Award in 1985 and 1986.  His work features in a number of collections, including in the Auckland Museum, Christchurch Art Gallery, the Beehive, Suzhou School of Art and Zhengzhou Art School in China, and the Aberystwyth Arts Center in Wales.
   If you have given me the above materials before, and there have been no recent changes, you can just inform me and I will use your former materials.

2.     Please email me 1 or 2 digital images (more are better) of your each horse teapot by 30 January, 2014 (2 MG JPG file at least, good quality for publication as well).
3.     A jury committee will select the horse teapots.  If your teapot is selected, the shipping points will be provided at a later date.
