With Diva’s Dreamscape, boatbuilder Peter Wakeman wanted to achieve a futuristic industrial look blended with timeless beauty and glamour. 

Peter used his skills developed during a lifetime of working with his hands, including boatbuilding, woodworking, and construction, to design and create three unique fibreglass ‘frocks’ which he entered in the Competition over a three-year period – Chica Under Glass (2013),Veniece in Glass Bind (2014) and Diva’s Dreamscape (2015). 

He works mainly with metal, wood and fibreglass and describes his signature look as ‘sleek, bold and sexy’, focusing on clean lines and a strong silhouette.
