glass is beautiful!
‘My pieces appeal to a wide audience and everyone from Elton John to the Duchess of Kent have bought my work. It is designed to be lived with and enjoyed as the light changes, not just viewed in a museum.’
At the age of 75, Layton says, ‘I have so much that I still want to do. You can never create the perfect piece of glass and there are always new ideas, techniques and other challenges to master. Glass is such an underrated medium – there is a fluidity and uncertainty which I choose to embrace rather than overcome.’
Artist of the Week: Peter Layton
‘Glass is extraordinarily seductive,’ explains Peter. ‘Every piece is an adventure and you never know exactly what you have created until you open the kiln and see how a piece has turned out. I love that moment of surprise.’
After carefully skimming through the insightful biography of Layton we came to the conclusion that this portion best described his work and glass making process. Almost every glass artist can agree that even with the anxiety that follows the tedious glass making routine; seeing that finished piece in the kiln is worth it.
Carlos is working on a new bead design. Look at the focus and intensity in his eyes and posture.
