Minson – Peter

Medium:  Glass

Peter Minson is a renowned glass artist who lives in the Yass Valley Shire at Binalong. He studied at the Orrefors Glass School, Sweden and Kosta Boda Glass, and has taught at the Canberra School of Art, RMIT University Melbourne and Sydney College of the Arts.

” I consider myself lucky to be third generation in a family of glass blowers and have followed a path of scientific glassblowing through to functional and artwork, to have worked with some of the best as an equal.” says the artist.

“I am continually seduced by the properties of Glass. Bright shining and hard when cold; completely transformed when hot and molten. To be able to dream of shapes and colours and see them appear as if by magic under intense heat and in my hands would have to be the ultimate in job satisfaction”.
