Born and raised in Germany, Pete moved to Bozeman, Montana, after living in Arizona for ten years. He has spent his life as an artist, working in a variety of mediums. His work has stretched from glass to wood, to steel and stone.
He gains inspiration from the harsh landscapes he has lived in and explored, such as the arid U.S. Southwest, Intermountain West, and recently Iceland.
Pete is an established Bozeman stone and steel sculptor, working with private buyers, as well as showing his work in public spaces. Several of his pieces can be seen in downtown Bozeman, at the Bozeman Public Library (both inside and out), at private homes in the Gallatin Valley, across the country and in Germany and Sweden.
Pete is a Gallatin Art Crossing board member, and was the 2011 recipient of the “People’s Choice Award” for Turning Stone. For more information, please see www.petestecher.com and www.gallatinartcrossing.com.
When not in his studio, Pete enjoys ski mountaineering – climbing peaks with skis- and rock climbing.
