Luce Artist Biography

Peter Shire became known in the 1970s for his colorful ceramic teapots that combined his interests in architecture, industrial design, craft, and high art. His innovative and humorous forms earned him a job working for the international design group Memphis. The artist's position there gave him the opportunity to work in a variety of media, including clay, glass, and metal. Shire's influences came from helping his father build Hollywood sets and later from studying at the Chouinard Art Institute.
