Robin Rhode Commission – Cast Glass Helmets

Robin Rhode is a South African artist based in Berlin. In 2008 he commissioned Peter Layton to create a series of 12 full size cast glass riot helmets in varying and progressive colour tints from clear to black. This ambitious project also involved making vacuum coated glass vizors and using a variety of materials: cast glass, metal, plastic and fabric.

The final piece, entitled Impis XII, was exhibited at White Cube, Hoxton Square, London in 2009, to universal acclaim.
