What started as his curiosity for pottery and vessel has extended to include painting and sculpture, and his present work is evidence of that evolution. He believes that color interaction can elicit new ways of seeing. He elects to stage conflict by introducing an assertive color field to an equally emphatic form. This friction augments and enriches perceptions of space. He believes in grounding his work within a historic study of this craft and within art as formal and cultural languages.

Born in Rochester, NY, Peter Pincus is a ceramic artist and instructor. He received his BFA (2005) and MFA (2011) in ceramics from Alfred University, He joined the School for American Crafts as Visiting Assistant Professor in Ceramics in Fall 2014.
