In his work Peter likes to reflect aspects of his personal interests and experience. As a child hiking in the Slovak mountains, he liked to collect minerals, semi-precious stones, dried leaves and plant cuttings. These things continue to capture his imagination. But he is also inspired by modern architectural shapes and designs. Thanks to the advance of computer technology, and CAD in particular, it is now possible to create geometric structures from complex, nature-inspired facets and curves.
In his glass practice, he likes to mix all of these elements together to produce sculptural pieces using a similar crystalline geometry to that found in nature. His work responds to both nature and modern digital technology. Peter’s work is kiln cast, cold worked and selectively polished. He also uses LED technology to emphasise the geometry of the work and, to enhance the unique optical qualities of the glass. The series of pieces presented here is called “Ghost”. This incorporates a sense of a tipping point and showcases the unique ability of handmade glass to present asymmetrical and yet balanced surfaces.
You can shop their collections and meet them alongside 70 other independent designers and makers at our next event at Shoreditch town hall.
