His earlier pieces were created on a more traditional two-dimensional plane, depicting sweeping skies, and wind blown pines.
After learning the basics of glass work from others, Peter was self-taught in this medium. His desire to grow and explore the sculptural possibilities of stained glass, resulted in him experimenting with the angling of sections of glass to create three-dimensional effects.
He began to place wire and glass pine trees apart from the flat background, so they became a silhouetted image in both hanging and free-standing pieces.
Peter’s strong desire to create a technique he could truly call his own, led him to the development of his present technique. The use of granite and quartz bases for his work, anchor the swirls of glass and metal to create sculptural landscapes totally unseen before in this medium.
Peter was named “Top Sculptor” at the McMichael Canadian Collection Autumn Art Sale in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and was “Best in Show” in 2019.
