Peter makes the pottery and Susan decorates it. Peter likes his pots to appear animated and to impart a sense of volume or fullness. He throws most of the forms on the pottery wheel and then manipulates them off and on the wheel to achieve the shapes that he desires. Peter is influenced by Japanese, British and Korean pottery.

Peter and Susan Stark have been making functional pottery in Longmont for over 20 years. The pots that they make are white stoneware, which is covered with a white opaque glaze and decorated with colorful imagery. The Stark's make functional pots because they like that the art they make to insinuates itself into other peoples’ everyday lives.
