Peter Layton

Peter  Layton

Peter Layton originally trained in ceramics, but the discovery of hot glass was the beginning of a love affair. He was inspired by the immediacy of this engaging yet elusive medium, and as much by the demanding process as the magical qualities of the material. Each piece represents an adventure and a challenge to control form and colour, while allowing the fluidity of the glass to contribute its own qualities and characteristics.

Self-taught as a glassmaker, Peter Layton's work is organic and tactile, striving to achieve a form of controlled asymmetry. His series evolve by 'sketching on the blowing iron' in the belief that an understanding of the work is best achieved through making. An inveterate beachcomber, his work is often drawn from some aspect of nature or something observed while travelling.
