Peter Lange (1944- ) was born in Auckland, New Zealand. After a period travelling the world, Lange returned to New Zealand and set himself up in Warkworth with diesel kiln and began producing stoneware domestic pottery. In the 1980’s he began experimenting with slip cast ceramics which allowed him to work in a more sculptural way. From 1997-2008 Lange was the director of the Auckland Studio Potters Teaching Centre in Onehunga, Auckland.
