Peter Fink

My work is arround domestic ceramics for the table and interior design. At my workshop in Ependes-Fribourg I work out simple shapes and clear lines, sometimes decorated with a calligraphy, a delicate relief or in strong, shiny colours.

Collaboration
I’ve made projects in diferent fields so I’m used to collaborate regularly with artists and designers and also with other ceramists. some rojects have been made with Memphis-Milano, Alfred Hofkunst, Zap-Design, Brigitte Steinemann, l’ECAL, Bjørn Wiinblad and others.

Training and skill building
I’ve gived lessons at the Art Schools of Vevey and Berne as well as for the Swiss Federal Institute of Techonoly in Zürich. In collaboration with the Popular University or the University of Teacher Education Fribourg other courses are organized.

Cooperation
As a ceramic expert I’ve worked for Swisscontact and the Zürich University of the Arts as a ceramic consultant and adviser in development cooperation.
