Artist Bio

Peter Zimmerman Designs in Glass

I started as an apprentice glass blower in 1991 in Centralia, WA. Trained in traditional venetian soft glass from a furnace, I worked many years in that area before having an opportunity to move to the island of Bermuda as a journeyman production glass blower in 1997. By 2007 I was production manager in Bermuda and ready to move on, landing in Massachusetts at Western Avenue Studios and starting my own studio.

In 2015 I moved to working with Borosilicate Glass Flameworking and have been learning new skills and new designs ever since.
