Peter Layton has recently taken inspiration from painters he admires, incorporating a more sculptural and painterly approach to vessel making. In these series, the flattened form becomes a canvas for gesture and bold colour. He is not seeking to replicate the painter’s work, but conjure the essence and painterly qualities in the medium of glass. In 2016, Peter was invited to make new work by the Royal Academy for their survey show on the Abstract Expressionists. Just as Pollock’s organic drips and splashes capture the painter’s moment in the studio, so glassblowing freezes a moment of decision and discovery recording controlled chance and drama in glass.
