Silent Auction 2019

sssh...Bid before Peter changes his mind!

Silent Auction 2019

Treasures from Peter Layton's highlights collection

Silent Auction 2019

Pieces hand selected by Peter Layton

Silent Auction 2019

04.04.19 - 13.04.19

The Silent Auction returns this year with stunning pieces from Peter Layton’s private collection and a selection of remarkable work from our resident artists. Among these lots are a special grouping from Peter Layton’s Highlights collection, archival pieces, never to be repeated, which are very dear to their maker and are slowly being released via the auction. Along with these Highlights, Peter has added a few iridised pieces from his recent experiments and a selection of work from his revisited series. Together, the pieces from Peter Layton in the auction span many styles, series and make a well rounded variety of his glassmaking work.

Peter’s Silent Auction pieces are joined by work from the studio team which has become hugely popular with our collectors throughout the Auction’s history. Each piece has been specially selected by its artist for the auction. 

The Silent Auction is a chance to collect a truly unique treasure, and take home your very own piece of British glassmaking history.
