Peter Glassford specializes in furniture design, sculpture and installation art. Versatile in size, material and function, his work encompasses design-based aesthetics, with unique and original purpose. Using random shaped pieces, discarded cut-offs from a furniture factory, Peter assembles collages that are accidental, chaotic compositions of beauty and versatility.
Beginning his career as a sculptor, Peter has mastered a range of skills working with materials that include wood, concrete, metal, glass, stone and tile. His work is contemporary, yet retaining a classical nature through traditional design principles.
A Laredo, Texas native and graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Peter travels between residences and studios in San Antonio and Guadalajara, Jalisco Mexico, where his original inspiration for furniture design began. He co-owns a furniture workshop in Guadalajara that is today a successful international company. Peter and his wife, Luz Maria Sanchez, developed the Triangle Project Space in San Antonio's Southtown Art District - an impressive, non-profit space for living, working and creating art.
His work is on display at the San Antonio Museum of Art, as well as the Hotel Contessa and Tesoro Petroleum's headquarters in San Antonio.
