Born in 1952 (not to be confused with Peter Anderson b1979 - Tasmanian Potter, or Peter Anderson b1901 high profile U.S. potter). After working with several important local potters in South Australia he became Creative Director of the Ceramics studio at the Jam Factory 1989-1990, and then moved to his own pottery in the Adelaide Hills.
This piece looks to be 1980s, possibly early 1990s going by the colour used. Its a nice feature piece 30cm tall x 24 diameter. Peter's work is stamped PA on the base. (Thank you to Judith at Bemboka where I found Peter's bio ).

If you are in Australia keep an eye out in charity shops etc. for Australian studio pottery - although this piece was at auction - studio pottery seems to be about the only type of bargain left in charity shops here these days because it can be too hard to identify - and hence sold at bargain prices. I've picked up a few local potters' work in this way in the past few years.
