"The softness of a cheek, comfort of a hug, cuddling with the kids this is irresistible stuff for me."
Peter Saenger's work took its present direction soon after he became a parent. Dynamic pots that are lively and fun, soft to the touch, always in motion. Wanting his art to serve more than just a symbolic function, he designs with beauty and utility in mind.
Puzzles have a power over Saenger. He obsesses over solving them. Figuring out a new design is like meeting someone new and getting to know them piece by piece. And a puzzle's solution is a greater challenge when it has to work on many levels.
