Peter Beasecker makes primarily wheel thrown porcelain utilitarian, objects: teapots, cups, tumblers, etc. “Beasecker’s recent work has concentrated on ‘carriers’, dark stoneware vessels holding numerous porcelain cups or bowls. He also continues his porcelain work making simple plates, bowls, and vases.” (http://peter-beasecker.com 8 19 2016  10:45 p.m.)

 He often creates pieces in sets: nesting bowls, sets of bowls, and double vases. He continued the idea of relationship pottery in later work: small porcelain bowls in larger stoneware containers, or carriers, and porcelain slabs.

Peter Beasecker’s studies at Alfred were influenced by Val Cushing. Jack Troy and Richard Roth are his mentors.

In 1977, Beasecker lived in Japan and participated in the International Workshop of Ceramic Art in Tokoname, Japan. In 2003, he received an NCECA International Travel Grant to travel to China.
