Grown Glass

Event organised by Peter Wiechenthaler

The "Grown Glass" sculptures combine death and life. They give back value to death and create something new out of it. Glass sheets are cut, sanded, glued and reshaped in order to create the artwork. It is a gradual process that requires patience and perseverance, as each stage builds on the previous one. The artwork evokes a sense of the natural world and invites the viewer to reflect on his own relationship with it.

Peter Wiechenthaler (b. Austria, 1984) was born in Saalfelden-Salzburg. During his 6-year apprenticeship at the Technical School for Glass in Kramsach he fell in love with sculpture. In the following years, he was creatively active. He now lives in Bressanone-Italy and has been creating his Glass sculptures there since 2022.
