A dedicated craftsman, Peter always loved to draw, paint and carve, and acquired formal training in the disciplines of metallurgy, mechanical engineering and design, receiving a BS in Industrial Design. Always fascinated with the process of metal casting, he “poured” energy into the science and art of 19th-century metal casting and pattern making. Cirecast’s products include door hardware, lighting fixtures, decorative railings, and other architectural elements.
