One of the things which sets our studio apart from many others are the intense periods of experimentation, or ‘playtime’ as we describe them, that Peter and the team devote to the creation of each new collection. This process is costly and time consuming and often yields beautiful pieces which suggest new directions to explore. The very special versions of these are kept on Peter’s sample shelves, often for years, until eventually Peter feels that he is able to release them. These form part of our ‘Highlights’ collection.

Harlequin is without a doubt one of Peter Layton’s more exuberant series. Conceived for our highly successful ‘Vetro’ exhibition back in 2014, Harlequin took its main inspiration from the flamboyance of Venetian glass making techniques. Lively, brash and incredibly animated, this impressive Harlequin tall bowl makes no apologies for sense of theatrical grandeur. A word of warning. This piece is more than a little wild and is not for the faint hearted!
