About the Artist:
Peter Greenwood has created an almost foot high, clear hand blown glass chair for Chairish the Arts. He is a professional glass blower with a studio/gallery in Riverton, Connecticut – Greenwood Glass. At the early age of 19, Peter had a life changing shift of consciousness, involving the mystique, the discipline, and the spiritual exercise which defines glassblowing. He took his first steps toward his career at the Rhode Island School of Design, and additionally enhanced his studies by attending other institutions renowned for the craft of glasswork. Peter has traveled to the glass centers of Europe and has won several awards, and exhibited in numerous museums and galleries.

His portfolio includes work as varied as an enormous dining table with twin pedestals, to a finely detailed 18-inch statuette, a replica of the 18 foot statue called the Genius of Connecticut. Peter thinks three dimensionally with ease. His works include finely crafted wood furniture, hand forged iron, stainless steel fabrication, and stone fireplaces. Peter's insatiable desire to develop and refine new designs motivates him to continually explore the infinite possibilities of working with hot glass.
