My first encounters with kiln formed glass were on a Foundation in Art and Design course in 2000. I was immediately captivated by the process. I spent 3 years on a part time Fine Art degree before getting my own kiln and following my instincts to make glass !
Peter Newsome PhD, ARBS, RBA is a professional sculptor who specialises in glass sculpture. He has exhibited widely in the UK and in New York and appeared on Sky TV across Europe.
I work with hot glass and cold working techniques and my pieces are sculptural. I like to play with the interior of a blown form creating a hidden world into which you need to look deeper to discover detail. I study at Wolverhampton University on an MA in Design and Applied Arts.
