Peter King is one of the most influential figures in the field of architectural ceramics today. From his studio in Pensacola, Florida, he creates monumental exterior sculptures as well as ornately detailed archways, fireplaces, wall facades, and furnishings for residential interiors on a scale almost unimaginable in ceramics. He is the creator of the extraordinary entry gate at Annmarie Gardens in Solomons, Maryalnd, the largest freestanding ceramic sculpture in the country.
For “Architectural Passages,” King has produced a traveling show of nine new exterior pieces: archways, columns, and freestanding works. His goal is to showcase his concept of new age architectural ornamentation reflecting both his culture, and his view of the tension between technology and industrialism in the natural world.
