Love love

A one-off piece glass blowing sculpture by Layne Rowe & Andy Collins.

As a child Layne grew up being part of a local boxing club where my Dad was a trainer.“It was enjoyable physically and very rewarding mentally, finding control and discipline and gaining empathy for the sport.”

A sport with fine traditions that has many shades of interpretation. Respect should be given for it, without question.

Twenty-five years later, when Layne took a marker pen and inscribed LOVE on each glove, he and his Dad shared a nod, with a moment of understanding to what the gloves now represented.

Each glove was casted in plaster to create a two piece mould. Hot Glass was then blown into each mould taking on as much detail as possible. Once the pieces were cooled in a controlled atmosphere, they were then cut, ground and drilled using diamond tools.

The final touches involved sandblasting and gold leaf gilding.

Layne Rowe is an extremely gifted glass artist who has worked with Peter Layton for over 20 years, during which his approach to colour, form and surface pattern has evolved radically. Layne’s journey in glass began in 1994 during his degree course in 3D design at the University of Central Lancashire. On graduating he worked at London Glassblowing for a number of years before moving to Brazil where he set up a glass studio before rejoining Peter Layton.

Layne’s work has been widely exhibited around the world, notably in the V&A’s ‘Power of Making’ exhibition and at Collect at the Saatchi Gallery in 2013 and 2014. During 2014 he showed alongside Grayson Perry and Alexander McQueen in “Subversive Design”, at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. In 2015 Layne won the Design Award Bavarian State Prize in the category for cane overlay technique.
