Very nice Sue. I like Peter's work, almost bought a diatreta (it was to expensive). He made7 if I remember correctly. 
We are organizing a trip to Austria (Vienna) and Hungary with the Glass Association around the end of August. One event will be to meet some contemporary Hungarian glass artists including Peter (hopefuly). Tour details will be released soon (if curious just drop me a line, I have the updated preliminary program).

I've been googling him like mad - (I'm not very good at it) and I have managed to encounter images of several Diatreta pieces - I wasn't counting.

I'd love to be doing exciting tours such as the one you're mentioning, brains, (do you mind if I call you that?) but my health and finances rather preclude such things. My Poland holiday was a treat my partner organised and paid for for me. He bought me the shot glass too!
Cheers, Sue (M)
