Peter was born in London, England, but moved to New Zealand in 1974.
In 1979, he and Peter Raos opened the Hot Glass Company in Devonport, Auckland. They were some of the earlier glass artists in New Zealand and for ten years the partnership worked at perfecting hot glass blowing techniques. Peter joined Garry Nash at Sunbeam Glassworks in 1989 and worked there for two years.
Since that time, Peter has operated his own studio and has become one of New Zealand’s most respected glass artists. He has participated in all major New Zealand glass exhibitions and has exhibited widely overseas in Australia, Germany, England and Japan.
Three Queen Elizabeth II Arts Council Grants have enabled Peter to travel and study overseas, gaining valuable experience. He has served as the President of the New Zealand Society of Artists in Glass. Peter’s art glass has been included in many prestigious publications and his work is keenly sought after.
