About This Series

In 2012 we were pleased to launch Arrival of Spring, a new series that was the result of a challenging commission from The Royal Academy to produce a range of artistic glass to mark David Hockney’s important exhibition, ‘The Bigger Picture’. Peter, who has known and admired Hockney since growing up in Bradford, was delighted to have been asked to create a series of works based on some of his latest paintings. He and his team worked closely with the RA over a number of months in order to create a series that did justice to Hockney’s artistic vision. These pieces highlight Layton’s talent for translating rich painterly qualities and bold colours into hot glass.

About This Piece

This wonderful Arrival of Spring Sphere is an absolute jewel in the series. The colours are incredibly vibrant, yet the pattern has a serene quality owing to its staggering depth. It is almost impossible not to get drawn into the many layers within this globe. You are bound to lose hours at a time staring at this beautiful piece.
