Workshop Testimonials


Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful day at your studio. My niece Amelia couldn’t stop talking about it all the way home. Matter of fact even though it takes an hour to get to your place she wants to come back tomorrow and stay with me so she can go with me to get her paperweight and flower.
I want you to know you areĀ  an incredible teacher and a very patient teacher with theĀ  little ones. A very hard balancing act to have with such an intricate and delicate and safety dangerous process. You are outstanding.
I was very impressed and I know you’ve had years of experience, but I do appreciate the time you took with Amelia to help her understand the process and make her feel like she was in charge of her process and not that you were doing everything for her.
My next niece in line is only six. I watched how Amelia did struggle a little bit with the flower because of the strength she needed. So I will wait to bring my other niece Ellie out to your studio until she is a little bit older. But we will be back!!
Thank you also for your patience with me. Every time I look at that paper weight, I will think of the day I spent with my great niece and you.
Thank you so very much,

Hi Peter,
Just wanted you to know how much we appreciated what a special experience you gave us. You are a wonderful teacher -- clear, patient, encouraging, with a nice dose of humor thrown in! It has been three weeks since our workshop and we are still regaling friends with stories of our glass-making adventure. And we LOVE the pieces we made - even the wonky vase is very dear to us AND looks great with flowers in it. Thank you for providing us such a wonderful and memorable afternoon. We plan to return!
With best wishes,

Hi Peter,
Just wanted to let you know we liked all our glass pieces we made in
November and your workshop really was a once in a lifetime experience.
I know you asked where we found you listed. I know we visited your
website directly but I don't remember how I originally found your
workshops as something to do in CT.
I wrote you up in Trip Advisor:

Carol and I would like to thank you for a wonderful glass blowing experience. For me it was one of the best craft classes I have ever taken and I have taken plenty. Carol was also very happy with the workshop. We are both grateful to you for sharing your craft with us. I hope we get the opportunity to come back (with friends) for another workshop.
Best wishes,

Dear Mr.Greenwood,
Today our glass arrived! You did a great job finishing and packing the pieces which arrived in less than 48 hours. As we look back on our experience making the paperweights, flowers, and vases, we both realize it was your knowledge about glass blowing that allowed us to complete these. You were very professional in your instructions and allowed us to make our pieces without being critical of our first attempts. Thank you for your expert instruction in glass blowing. Sincerely, Laurie

Dear Peter,
We wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience. It started from observing the unique atmosphere in your beautiful shop and ended with the excitement of getting our own glass creation sent to our house. In between, you gave us the opportunity to fall in love with the art of glassblowing. Your kindness, patience and professionalism allowed even clumsy beginners such as ourselves to create beautiful art work, while experiencing this ancient craft. We left proud and fascinated, and we will be back!

I just wanted to say that we had the most marvelous time visiting your studio on Saturday. It is absolutely spectacular and the work in your gallery is just amazing. Anna was so thrilled - she will never forget her glass blowing experience for the rest of her life!
Thanks again,

Thanks so much for being such a gracious host/instructor at your studio on Friday. Kerin & I had a great time. We're looking forward to picking up our pieces on Saturday afternoon.
Thanks again,

I wanted to let you know that our pieces arrived safely yesterday evening. We were thrilled
to see how they turned out, and very, very glad to have had the experience. You are an excellent (and patient) artist and teacher. We both thank you very much for such a wonderful time at your shop.

Dear Peter,
Thank you so much for helping me make the paperweight. I just love it. It came out much better than I thought it would. I have looked at your website. You have some great commissions. It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you. You are an excellent teacher. Do take care and thanks again. It was a great experience. Rona - Bolton, MA

Dear Mr. Greenwood,
We just wanted to write to thank you so much for letting us come to your glass blowing studio. We really enjoyed making our paperweights and see all the beautiful glass that you have in your shop. We can't wait to see the paperweights finished! Thanks again for sharing your love of glass with us and for your help towards earning our Craftsman Activity Badge! Very truly yours, Jared, Donny, Ben, Matthew, Eric Pack 886 South Windsor, CT

Mr. Greenwood, For the past few years while walking past your studio to the fair, my sister and I have said we need to go in someday... Today we did, the door was open... Your gallery has the most beautiful glass pieces we have ever seen. I never imagined tables... chairs made of glass. The beautiful chandeliers, wall art etc. I know in my life time I could never own one of these, but to see them was enough. It further brightened what was a beautiful fall day. Thank you for sharing the beauty... Pat

Dear Peter,
Thank you so much for the marvelous glass blowing demonstration and commentary you gave for the Brandeis Women's Committee. You and your assistant truly made the entire process "crystal clear" You both were so patient to explain so many aspects of your work. Our members were quite enthused and many expressed a desire to return to your studio to show other friends & family.
Sincerely, Joni - Hartford, CT

Commission Testimonials

We received the items last week and finally put the sculpture on the wall yesterday. Mounting the sculpture was quite simple, as your directions were clear. It is perfect, gorgeous and so right for the wall. The bubble vase, as well, looks wonderful on our etagere. Thank you so much for the beautiful work. I cannot wait for friends and family to see the sculpture. Thank you, your very satisfied customers,

Hi Peter,
I meant to do this last week! The chandelier is just amazing. I am so happy that we went ahead with it. I love having a wonderful and unusual work of art as the main entry feature. It's fantastic. I promise you I'll appreciate it every day. And thank you very much for the pyramid. That doesn't happen much up this way, but in New Orleans it's "lagniappe" a little something extra. Take care, Pamela - Stamford, CT

Hi Peter,
I have just returned from the Alpert's house where I've seen the fixtures for the first time. Wow, Peter. The chandelier over the stairs is spectacular! I wish you could have been a fly on the wall as the entire construction crew stood and admired it today. One of them said to me in a very, very respectful and animated voice "Did you know that he bent every one of those rods by hand!" Dave said that it was an almost effortless "ten minute" installation, and that he thought the glass was gorgeous. It really is a beautiful element in the house... and I am, personally, very grateful you were a part of this unusual project for us. Thank you Peter.

Hey Peter,
Just wanted to thank you again! The table looks great! It was a pleasure working with you.

Peter, Your purple masterpieces are fabulous!!!!! We just love them! Thank you, Thank you!!!! They are far more gorgeous than we could have imagined, we can't wait to see them hanging. Now all of our other lighting seems nominal. My husband was just as delighted. Thanks again. Barbara - California
