Using black-and-white film in a classic camera is an ongoing passion for Peter. And he still prefers working with gelatin silver processing of films and printing papers in a traditional wet darkroom. He's also a specialist at photography of three-dimensional artwork in any medium.
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 was most impressed by the cast glass sculptures of Czech artists Stanislav Libensky and Jaroslava Brychtova.
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.
In 2005 the book "Peter Kovacsy A Studio Practice" was published to tell the story of establishing the studio and progress of his career. The text was written by Australian art historian Diana Roberts, with photography, desgin-layout and publishing by Peter.
