Large Blown Glass ‘New Hydrangea’ Tall Dropper by Peter Layton

This Tall Dropper large blown glass is evocative of the beginnings of Summer. As late spring begins to warm, the flowers of the Hydrangea appear.

With this artful glass dropper, you can enjoy the beginnings of summer all year round.

The booms have an air of autumnal colours with rich oranges, pinks and ambers worked together to create this floral beauty.

The piece imbues all the glories of three seasons, and can work in a variety of rooms, even dark orange through to burgundy as the contrast within the piece ensures it can stand its ground.

Each hand-blown piece is unique and personally signed by Peter Layton.

Large Blown Glass Artist

It is hard to know where to start when you are beginning the biography of an internationally-renowned, living legend. When Boha Glass set up a virtual shop in 2010, Peter Layton was one of those names that rang in your ear with a hallowed tone. Since first seeing his undulating, reef-coloured glass artistry we have been smitten, like love-struck teenagers.

Peter was born in Prague in 1937, but his family settled in Bradford after fleeing the Nazis when Peter was just two years old. He grew up in West Yorkshire and discovered his love of the Arts, in part, thanks to his grandfather.

At school in Bradford, his talent for art was encouraged and he became good friends with David Hockney. Peter went on to Bradford Technical College to study textiles whilst working in the rag trade between classes. He then did his stint of National Service, followed by a year on a kibbutz, before linking back up with Hockney at Bradford College of Art.

Here he abandoned textiles and painting in favour of ceramics at the Central School of Art in London. However, whilst teaching ceramics at the University of Iowa, Peter fell in love with the medium of glass. While teaching there he met an acquaintance of the pioneering Studio Glass artist Harvey Littleton. Peter improved his skills of glass artistry, however after an initial explosion and a badly burnt hand, Peter nearly gave up glass blowing for good. Thankfully, he persevered and set up the London Glassblowing Studio and Gallery in 1976. This studio is now one of the world’s foremost glassmaking centres; bang in the middle of London.

From this studio comes the “Paradiso” series and this stunning large blown glass.
