Pete Fricker Glass Artist uses the blown glass form like a canvas, as much an artist as a glass-maker he assembles colours and adds them as shards, trails, and grains as if from a palette.

Pete’s techniques include Hot glass, Kiln work, Leaded and Stained glass. Design ideas come from a variety of sources, in particular, the power and beauty of nature and especially our own planet Earth is his main inspiration. Seeing a volcanic lava flow or sheets of ice sliding from the end of a glacier, the analogies with glass are not far away.

A late arrival at the glass-makers ball, Pete Fricker Glass began when he studied at the International Glass Centre in Brierley from 2007 until 2009.  The addictive power of hot hand blown glass distracted him from an earlier interest in stained glass and led him in 2010 to co-found Stourbridge Glassblowing Studio with three former Brierley Hill students.  All his hand blown glass is made in the Glassblowing Studio.
