Peter Firmin

After studying at Central School of Art in the 50s, I worked in studios creating stained glass and then advertising design until I decided to freelance in 1957. This was a limited success. I did some illustration and always continued a small amount of engraving and lino-cutting.

In 1952 Oliver Postgate came looking for a needy artist. He wanted someone to do a lot of drawings for very little money for a live series of animated stories about some mice and their king Alexander.

I was reluctant to get involved but Oliver inspired me with his brilliant writing and we went on to work together making many films using my barns as our film studios. The list of our work includes "Ivor the Engine", "The Saga of Noggin the Nog", "The Clangers" and best known of all, "Bagpuss". We jointly created these films but in all of them I made all the sets and puppets, and did the drawings, backgrounds and cut-outs for the animated stories.

When we stopped making films in the 1980s I returned to my craft and was fortunate to get commissions to illustrate books with engravings on vinyl. This was a beginning of a renewed career in printmaking, with exhibitions in Whitstable, Canterbury, Saffron-Walden and Aldeburgh.
