Peter Lane is a New York based ceramic artist who specializes in large-scale architectural installations and monumental furniture and decorative work. His imagery evokes nature at its most brutal, primal, and sensual, drawn from rough-hewn and hand-wrought direct techniques that take advantage of the character of the earth itself. In his new 10,000 square foot Brooklyn studio, Peter Lane and his crew are capable of massive sculptural expression. For the 2018 edition of Collective Concept he built a new wall mounted ceramic sculpture, “Astrolabe” integrating a fireplace and convex mirror feature into a fully immersive environment. He is especially pleased to be collaborating again with FACE Design who are creating an architectural armature for the installation, and with Aurora Lampworks who will provide a custom lighting system.
