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

This beautiful Sailform is a real eye catcher. The pattern is particularly unusual in that it has a delicate, feathery, cream coloured aura surrounding it. This aura punctuates the rest of the pattern, visually lifting it from the surface of the piece. These complex patterns tend to have a life of their own. Peter particularly loves it when unpredictable and unrepeatable nuances occur!
