About This Series

The Paradiso series represents a painterly and sculptural approach to vessel making in which the flattened forms become the canvas for strong gestural mark making in vivid colour. In part inspired by the paintings of Hockney and Hodgkin this series was featured in The Financial Times ‘How to Spend it’, and is one of Peter Layton’s flagship series. The serenity of the ocean green backdrop is punctuated by the addition of bold, opaque colours. Bands of red, peach, and gold are woven together to form the basis of complex patternwork. No two patterns are ever the same as his free, sculptural approach to vessel making ensures each piece takes on a life of its own.

About This Piece

The ‘Dropper Form’ has become one of Peter Layton’s signature shapes and is widely regarded by Peter’s team of talented glassblowers as one of the trickiest forms to perfect. So when a Dropper such as this makes it through to our gallery, it is certainly something to get excited about! The impressive dimensions, coupled with the vibrancy of pattern and colour make this a truly knockout piece.

Weight 7.5 kg
