Peter Layton: 40 Years of Glassmaking
14th June - 11th September

This summer we showcase the largest exhibition to date from the renowned master of glass himself, Peter Layton. This year marks 40 years since Peter Layton founded his glassmaking studio in South London. Since then he has become one of the most highly regarded contemporary glass artists of his time, and has produced a huge and diverse body of work, always to great critical and commercial success. 

 

Peter will be turning 80 this year too, so to mark these twin milestones we'll be presenting a special exhibition of his work - Peter Layton: 40 Years of Glassmaking. This new exhibition, which opens on 14 June, will be the biggest collection of Peter's work that we have ever hosted, and it stands as the biggest exhibition of his work in the north of England. We are expecting over 30 beautifully crafted pieces, some of which will be from Peter's newest series Burano; inspired by Venetian lace-making - these pieces are already sought-after by many fans and collectors of Peter's work.
