Past & Present - London Glassblowing
  • Description
  • Related
This book is a celebration of glass art as seen through the life and work of Peter Layton and his studio – one of the longest running in Europe. It includes an essay by Scott Benefield on the history of this exciting ‘new’ medium, and Andy McConnell who writes about the current state of glassmaking and its future viability. Set up in 1976 by Peter Layton, London Glassblowing Studio and Gallery has become one of Europe’s leading creative hubs for glassmaking.

Peter Layton's pioneering vision to establish a workshop that would take risks and experiment with glass in an organic fashion, has breathed life and energy into a material previously confined to industrial usage.

In 2009 London Glassblowing moved to its present superb location on Bermondsey Street. Here it has grown in strength, its welcoming gallery recognized as a leader in its field. The key figure in the long standing success of this studio is Peter Layton, whose mission remains to produce work of the highest quality while promoting glass as an exciting medium for individual artistic expression. Glass offers a vast range of creative possibilities; endlessly intriguing and captivating; a timeless record of frozen light, colour and form as shown in this superbly illustrated volume.
