Peter McDougall began his career in glass at Strathearn. He was factory manager at Perthshire Paperweights until the company closed down. He set up PMcD Glass Studio Ltd. in Crieff, Scotland in 2002. He produced General Range weights and issued an Annual Collection of small limited editions or designs made only for one year. His PMcD signature-cane is usually either incorporated in the design or embedded in the base. At the end of 2011- after a life spent working with glass - Peter closed down PMcD Glass Studio but he continues to produce a few weights - sometimes in collaboration with his son, Allan.
