Peter Layton’s Solo Shows have become an annual and much anticipated event in the London Glassblowing calendar. This year, as he turns 85, we are celebrating his irrepressible energy and creativity with an exhibition titled ‘A Kind of Magic’. His work goes from strength to strength, so don’t miss seeing the eye-popping colours of this vibrant new collections.
This exhibition includes a new collection of work called Jazz which revels in the improvisational and playful nature of its making. In part inspired by African fabrics, Jazz imparts a joyful energy and in this auspicious time of the Jubilee and the International Year of Glass, lends a jubilant character to this exhibition.
“My intention is to show a number of groups which when seen together will tell a story, and where each piece explores some aspect of the core theme. A red, white and blue group is self explanatory in this year of jubilation. The blue and yellow pieces speak of a very different reality and a donation will be made from the sale of each of these pieces as part of our support for Ukrainian resistance to the invasion of their country.
In an effort to create a physical timeline, I am also including several pieces that are significant markers in my career in glass, and which highlight aspects of my practice over the years.”
