Nielebock grew up in Berlin Germany and moved with his family to the United States in 1966. He was drafted into US Army and served in Vietnam for one year. After finishing his tour of duty he decided to re-enlisted and was trained as an air traffic controller. He retired in 1990. During his last year in the army he was stationed in upstate New York and decided to take a class in stain glass which was offered in a craft store on the base. He used a pattern to create a sun catcher and this was the only pattern her ever used. Peter shared: "working with glass is a never ending challenge and I am still learning what not to do, or coming up with a plan B. I look for unique pieces of glass and create a picture, looking for harmony or contrast. Once I I have determined the dimensions, I make a sketch, start with the piece of glass that inspired me and then build upon it"
