Peter Berry

Peter Berry studied Architectural Stained Glass at Swansea and set up his first studio in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside in 1990.

Based on a farm, with his north-facing studio window affording views over the fields, Peter regularly takes inspiration from rural Wiltshire themes and observations: the flash of a kingfisher in the River Marden, a narrow boat navigating the Kennet and Avon canal at Devizes, and, especially, the eight white horses cut into the chalk downs of central Wiltshire.

His glasswork is often created using traditional techniques and methods: creating a scale design, drawing it up to full sized cartoon and cutline, and then cutting, painting, leading, soldering and cementing. More recently he has been exploring the world of glass fusing with its layers of cut and crushed glass (frit), bonded together at high kiln temperatures.
