Meet artist and designer Benjamin Kovacsy Benjamin Kovacsy WEBSITE
In 1979 Peter moved to Pemberton to construct the rammed earth house he designed, to live in. 1989 saw his transition from a registered builder, to open what he then called the 'Woodcraftsman's Studio'. At the time primarily working with wood as a designer-maker and master craftsman. His first encounter with contemporary glass was in 1992 when he visited Design Visions, the Australian International Craft Triennial, at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
Peter's first hands-on experience with glass casting came in 1996 at Perth-based company HiGlass. Then in 2003 a local liturgical commission for decorative window panels provided the set-up resources to equip the studio with a glass fusing kiln. Today he operates the only privately-owned kiln in Western Australia capable of producing large scale cast glass sculpture.
