Known for his sculptures in crystal and other media such as gold, silver, and stainless steel, Peter Yenawine is one of America’s most talented designers. In the natural elements of the earth he discovers and then cultivates exquisite native possibilities until a form emerges that is as essential, as pure, and as recognizably a Yenawine, as those of Tiffany and Faberge before him.
For seven years, Peter was a Master Designer at Steuben Glass, and since that time has had designs created by most of the major international crystal and art glass houses: Baccarat, Daum, Orrefors, Rosenthal, Nachtmann, Cristalleries de Saint Louis, Val St. Lambert, Lenox, Steuben and Swarovski.
While Director of Designs for the Franklin Mint, Mr. Yenawine worked intimately with Philippe and Jacques Cousteau on a commission for the Cousteau Society to create a remarkable four-part crystal sculpture mirroring the water planet of Jacques Cousteau.
Peter Yenawine has been commissioned by seven White House administrations to create numerous gifts of state and has designed numerous international sporting trophies.
