Peter Uprichard is a retired carpenter/house builder, shop teacher, working in flat glass art in his studio-home in Sandford, VA, a small village surrounded by salt marsh & farm fields 3 miles from the Chesapeake Bay. He is also a dedicated organic gardener and a bread maker.  His most recent work in glass is the depiction of native shore birds. 
His ambition is to be known as the "Grandpa Moses" of flat glass art.
He is preparing his shop/studio to be available for lessons in stained glass, as well as for use by fellow artists.  The shop will also contain a potter's wheel and kiln.
The clear glass used in Peter's creations is salvaged from derelict houses.  It is wavy and shows defects.  The frame is cherry wood also salvaged from derelict frame houses as structural 2x4's and remilled by hand into frame stock.  Thus, the glass creation is both art and artifact.
