For over fifteen years, Peter Battaglene has focused on working with porcelain, and producing small scale, limited editions of fine table ware and individual pieces which embody an elegant simplicity, combing fine materials and design.

He has developed a distinctive personal vocabulary of minimal thrown forms and applied graphics expressed on positive and negative ground.

"In the best tradition of minimalist design, Battaglene's pared down decoration is rich with layers of reference and meaning. From the venerable tradition of blue and white to evocations of industrial processes and teeming micro-organisms. These references flicker in and out of the mind in a manner that parallels the formal figure/ground relationships of the patterns.

The patterning and layering of Battaglene's work creates an electric potential that dwells quietly within cool and minimal forms. Disciplined and pared down - yet aesthetically and conceptually rich - Peter Battaglene's work is both edgily contemporary and timeless in its cool elegance"
