Peter Stichbury had posed for this clay model I created while I was a student at Ardmdore Teachers' College, 1962. I was 18 years old.

My sincere sympathy and deepest condolences to the Stichbury family at the passing of Peter. Peter was my art lecture during my second year at Ardmore Teachers' College. I remember his passion for what he was achieving as a lecturer; the way he related to his students; the reputation he created as an artist (particularly pottery) and the legacy he has left behind him R.I.P Peter Stichbury.

My sincere condolences to the Stichbury family. Peter and Diane welcomed the JCHS orchestral musicians into their home and we remember the warmth and love of that family very well. Thinking of you all at this very sad time.

Dear Diane, I am so sorry that Peter has left us, he will be remembered by so many. His pots that we still use every day will always bring back lots of memories of days at the Albany Pottery. Love from Heather and Peter Skeates.


Peter will be long remembered by former students at Ardmore Teachers College as a inspirational teacher of art and pottery in particular.

To Philippas and Family, A sad time for you all. Thoughts are with you at this time.
I was a childhood friend of Philippas, I remember Peters amazing creativity and the smell of the Kline. Thank you for impacting my memory with lovely things. :-)
