Peter Layton has always taken inspiration from his environment, both natural or manmade. Perhaps a stone wall on a snowy day, the London skyline, or works by the great painters. From a mere detail, a flash of Klimt orange or a slick of oil on the Thames, he creates painterly works with a masterly use of colour.
In the past he has created larger sculptural and installation artworks for public and private spaces. Today these take on a smaller scale. He continues to explore challenging themes such as his Cloudforms, Pyramids, Buranos, Discs and Heads.
Peter has been courted by major art institutions, commercial buyers and private collectors. Peter Layton glass art is held in various museums including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
