Peter was born in Adelaide Australia and worked at his grandfathers ornamental wrought iron workshop from the age of 10 years old where he loved to work during school holidays and weekends learning all his granfather and the craftspeople at the workshop could teach him.
On graduating from school, Peter decided that he wanted to continue working for his grandfather and worked full time until he finally took over the business from his beloved grandfather and built it up until there were nearly 100 staff and craftspeople working for him supplying hotels, cafes, restaurants, clubs and individual clients until 1993 when Peter made the decision for family reasons to move the business to their home town of Kalamata in Greece.
Most designs for private owners are unique and may only be made once in Peter's lifetime. All of Peter's work is hand crafted and hand finished to the highest quality possible. Whether the order is for one piece for a private client, or hundreds of pieces for a hotel or cafe, the quality remains the same.
Peter loves to say that long after the product is delivered, the quality remains to be enjoyed, often for generations of family!
The workshop on the outskirts of Kalamata, near the new Kalamata hospital, is always available for visits for those who simply want to browse and look at some of the pieces on display, perhaps watch Peter working in the workshop, and of course for talking to Peter and requesting quotes for the designs you have in mind.
Peter's personal hobby is collecting old antique lamps and traditional metal frame beds. He has plenty he has collected over the years and would be happy for you to admire his collection with him!
Needless to say, whether you want to chat with Peter in English or Greek, he's fluent in both languages.
