Alice Peto continues a long family tradition of British creativity. Among her ancestors is Samuel Peto, whose architectural legacy includes the Houses of Parliament and Nelson’s Column.
It was in Florence, Italy where as a young lady she completed her artistic training. Since then, her watercolour paintings have appeared in exhibitions throughout Britain and overseas. Similarly she also produces an extensive range of prints, and other works including bespoke invitations, maps and children’s illustrations. Likewise she has also practiced as an interior designer, and spent seven years as an art teacher at schools in London before leaving the profession to bring up her own children.
Today, she sees herself as an artist who translates her work into ceramics. Moreover as founder and creative director of her eponymous tableware brand, she brings her unique personality, personal vision and a true artistic sensibility to everything the company does.
Alice’s designs bring beauty, theatre and joyfulness to everyday living and special occasions alike. Quintessentially English, her ranges effortlessly bridges the gap between formal and informal, classic and contemporary, and is equally happy being used on its own, or mixing-and-matching with whatever you’ve already got.
