Inspired by Hokusai’s ‘Great Wave’

about this series

Peter has drawn inspiration from Hokusai’s famous ‘Great Wave’, and explored a variety of forms, colours and techniques in an attempt to interpret the qualities he admires. Among these is a sense of frozen movement which is also an intrinsic element of the process of working with hot glass. As the glass cools it requires crucial decisions in order to capture a particular form, by allowing the glass to freeze in that moment. Peter and his team hot sculpted a series of sculptural forms, in an attempt to emulate the power, movement and swirling colour of Hokusai’s cresting wave.
