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 piece has certainly entered our hall of fame for uniqueness alone. The Disc Dropper is a rare shape for us, owing to its complexity. As a result, there are barely any examples of it to be seen. Especially pieces of this scale. The pattern is also incredibly vibrant with just the right balance of transparency and opacity. Any collector of rare artefacts from our studio should watch this piece with great interest.

Weight 3 kg
Dimensions 17 x 17 x 15 cm
