THE HAND DRAWN GLASS
NIGEL PEAKE CRYSTAL EDITION | J. HILL’S STANDARD
09.17.2019 – 11.14.2019
The series “Hand Drawn Glass”, designed and hand drawn by Irish illustrator Nigel Peake, represents a departure from the traditional rigid cut patterns of crystal glass, exploring an organic approach to form and design. The pieces feature clean, elemental shapes, and cuts that reveal the imprint of the hand.
Known for his paintings and drawings of built and unbuilt landscapes – interpreted in his books, textiles, porcelain and glass, Peake has created a series of three tumblers of various sizes: a carafe, a decanter and bowl. A spontaneous cutting motion captures the fleeting movement of the drawing hand. The collection includes a limited edition of 20 series in four available patterns to choose from and an open edition with seven available patterns to choose from. A book of drawings and references, titled “Fieldwork,” accompanies the collection. The artist’s book illustrates the continuum between inspiration, glass and cut pattern.
