Trained as a French Polisher and then moving into three-dimensional art and sculptural furniture, Pete’s work is evocative and highly skilled. When living in Taos, New Mexico, Pete’s Lost World series was awarded Best of Show for three consecutive years.

In this talk, Pete will take us through the process involved in creating his bass relief panels. He will discuss how he develops the concept, executes the design and the challenges he encounters along the way.
