Biography

Peter Luti

Peter Luti studied ceramics at Duncan of Jordanston College of Art, Dundee and Goldsmiths College, London, before becoming an art teacher. He later progressed to lecturing in Art and Design before eventually finishing his teaching career as Head of the Expressive Arts at Glasgow University.

Influenced by the landscape around him, and in particular the diversity of the Scottish terrains, Peter constantly focuses, explores and develops his style. Not only motivated by his surroundings, Peter draws inspiration from many of his fellow contemporary Scottish Artists. ' I admire greatly the range of work produced by Jim Wylie, Ian Elliot and Peter King'. Many of their pieces are inspirational. I describe my own work as simplified semi-abstract, which does not fall into the constraints of a particular artistic style. I have developed it over a number of years and have yet to see a similar technique in other artists work. The depth of texture is vitally important to the final piece.

Peter's heavily textured application prior to the addition of colour is a technique that he has made his own, and his work is instantly recognisable. The process of developing the application and technique and the drive to improve with each new piece is one of Peter's favourite aspects of being a professional artist. As a result, his driven approach to his work has resulted in Peter having no particular favourite piece of his own, but viewing each work of art as an individual challenge.

Other Information

In the 1980s, Sandie and Pete Luti owned and ran Callander based "PL Pottery", which sold high quality Scottish studio pottery directly to the public. A 1970's graduate in ceramics from Duncan of Jordanstone, Pete also produced pottery to sell in the shop. Although successful, P.L. Pottery closed its doors after 8 years as other commitments took over.

Until recently Peter was exhibiting and selling his paintings in several Scottish art galleries. Currently he supplies Galleria Luti exclusively, and there has been a great deal of interest in his work.

Galleria Luti is owned and run by Peter's wife, Sandie and daughter, Marsha.
