In 2014, Peter challenged the team to explore the influence of Venetian technique in their own work for an exhibition titled ‘VETRO: Exploring the Venetian Influence’. Peter himself was inspired to work in a variety of new ways, Burano being the result of one particular avenue of exploration. Burano, a neighbouring island to Murano, has a history of lace-making, so for months Peter and his team experimented with reticello-like effects in an effort to create fine lacy qualities. By working within extremely thick, clear sailforms multiple reflected imagery is achieved. Burano is fast becoming one of Peter’s most-admired series and is one which, due to the demanding nature of the lengthy process involved, is extremely difficult to perfect.
