About This Series

In 2013 the National Gallery invited Peter Layton to select a painting from their collection to interpret in glass. Peter was particularly inspired by the skies in many paintings and eventually chose ‘Wheatfield with Cypresses’ by Vincent Van Gogh. It took months of experimenting with different kinds of dramatic skies and different ways of portraying the wheatfield in the foreground, and eventually Peter and the team combined two separately blown elements to achieve the desired effect. The pieces have been very well received in both our gallery and in the National Gallery shop.

About This Piece

Our Wheatfield series came about as a result of a recent collaboration with the National Gallery, based on the iconic work of Vincent Van Gogh. The collection is real departure from many of our recent works. Peter has taken his painterly approach to colour application to a whole new level. This sumptuous round stoneform is a superb example of this lavish series. The attention to detail is plain to see within every aspect of this remarkable pattern. The piece has been gently acid etched in order to enhance the tonal qualities of the colour. The end result is nothing less than opulent. An outstanding tribute to the work of a past master, interpreted by the hand of a present day master!
