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 incredible dropper is unusual in the respect that it is wider than it is tall. A very difficult shape to accomplish, especially in the Paradiso pattern. These broad dimensions help to accentuate the pattern which is dominated by a magnificent band of red encompassing the entire piece.

Weight 5 kg
Dimensions 11 x 29 x 26 cm
