Pete Breaux Creates Specialty Lighting For Artists, Homes, Galleries And Repairs Kilns, Wheels, Pugmills

The Rickie Report is pleased to introduce Pete Breaux, a solar engineer with a lifelong interest in the arts.  Pete creates custom lighting to highlight art for artists, galleries, museums or any place that displays artwork.  We’ll show you a sneak peek of one of his customized color-changing light bases for glass art.  In addition, he repairs kilns, wheels, pugmills or he can build you a custom one!  An US Navy Veteran solar engineer with a background and love of the arts, Pete comes highly recommended.

Pete Breaux tells The Rickie Report, “I am a solar engineer with a lifelong interest in the arts. In addition to working as a consultant, I am involved in electrical, art-related endeavors as ‘Lectrik Arts, by NRG’, (NRG is my solar company).  My mother was an artist and teacher, so I dabbled in the arts and learned much, sometimes through osmosis”.



“I also had great interest in things electrical and electronic, sometimes taking things apart, and creating other things with the parts. I expanded my knowledge in this area as a Sonar Technician in the Navy.  On leaving the military, I was a musician for many years and attended Berklee School of Music in Boston (I’m still available to perform for gallery openings, garden parties)”.





“Pete started working with kilns when his future wife, Cynthia Zmetronak, asked a friend if he knew anyone who could repair kilns. He recommended me, and I fixed her kiln … the rest is history, and now I fix her kilns for free!  I work with all types and brands of electric kilns (even custom, complex, or problematic). In addition to kilns, I repair wheels and pugmills (and any other art-related electrical gear)”.





The custom color-changing light bases for glass art that Pete creates are perfect for an art-centric home or gallery.  His understanding of how to highlight artwork of all types is what makes his custom lighting very special. Pete is available to work with individuals, galleries, and museums.
