Picking Daisies

One off piece

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

Glass, a seductive material, translates a potentially harmful object into a beautifully fragile art form.  This piece advocates an alternative to the anger and conflict that fills our world.

The replicated weapon has been hand-sculpted with extreme precision. The accuracy of each piece has been achieved by creating hot formed elements blown and sculpted as close to the required shape and size as possible, then cold worked with diamond tools to achieve more accuracy and style.

Floral symbols have been strategically placed to promote peace.

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.
