Peter Greenwood was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1960. In 1979, he had a shift of consciousness; the mystique, the discipline, the spiritual exercise which defines glass blowing forever changed his life. Peter has traveled to the glass centers of Europe including Orrefors, Sweden, Venice, Italy and Czechoslovakia. Peter thinks three dimensionally with ease and is a natural builder. His works include finely crafted wood furniture, hand forged iron, bronze, stainless steel fabrication, and stone fireplaces. Peter's work has been shown in museums and galleries throughout the United States, and is included in numerous
private collections worldwide.
