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

Paradiso is Peter Layton’s flagship series and nowhere is this classification more aptly bestowed than in this magnificent roll rimmed bowl. The piece is deliberately blown extra thickly in order to preserve the intensity of the colours. The rim is partially folded into the bowl to coat every inch of viewable surface area with this gorgeous pattern. The end result is truly breathtaking.

Weight 9.5 kg
Dimensions 23 x 23 x 15 cm
