Peter Lane is a New York based artist fascinated by Japan. During many years, he has been working on how to personnalise traditionnal Japaneses ceramic technics. Using his own mix of sands, he managed to create a specific texture of clay in order to create unique pieces inspired by nature. Theses sculptures can evoque birchwood, honeycombs, or scholar rocks, rocks that are sculpted by the water of a river. This creativity was first expressed through objects such as vases or lamps to grow into larger scale architectural pieces today.
From ceramist, Peter Lane became a sculptor and his artworks are sometimes several meters long, as for example the modular wall « Seabed III », presented at the « Pavillon des Arts et du Design » of Paris and London in 2009. Through 5 meters, molded, sculpted, fluted, and enamelled, this work of the clay confirms the master of the artist, who was awarded the prize of best artwork at that exhibition.
The « Life on Mars » wall, presented the year after, confirmed the talent of this artist who developped his creativity in large scales and architectured volumes. These events were also successfully followed by others at the Art Décoratifs in Paris, the armory show in New York and more recently the Paris Photo in Los Angeles.
Peter is represented in Paris at Chahan Gallery, as well as in the United States at Gray Gallery in Los Angeles.
His exclusive collaboration with Chahan Minassian is constantly evolving in order to allow a new expression through various innovative clay effects. These spectacular results are also adapted to Chahan’s designed furniture. Indeed, Peter Lane’s association to Chahan Minassian’s signed pieces gave birth to exceptionnal libraries, spectacular screens, and more recently a beautiful chest of drawers.
The quality of Peter Lane’s work is largely appreciated by aesthetes and collectors all around the world, and has also been confirmed and praize by the « Arts Décoratifs » Museum of Paris as one of his artwork is part of the permanent collections since 2009. The LVMH Foundation has also been commissioning an exceptionnal custom piece in 2012.
