The series Hand Drawn Glass, designed and hand drawn by Irish illustrator Nigel Peake, explores a spontaneous approach to glass cutting. The pieces feature clean, elemental shapes, and use a spontaneous cutting motion that captures the fleeting movement of the drawing hand.
Known for his paintings and drawings of built and unbuilt landscapes - interpreted in his books, textiles, porcelain and glass, Nigel has created a series of three tumblers of various sizes, a carafe, a decanter and a series of wood tops made by Gavin Rea (County Down) that can transform the pieces into containers at your will.
A book of drawings and references, titled ‘Fieldwork’, accompanies the collection.
Finding a small book of Nigel’s drawings on Irish landscape inspired the idea for the collection. It was compelling to work with his account of the textures and patterns so vivid in nature.
‘there is a time of year when the tops of the fields become visible’ -Nigel.
