The Art Deco style period is making its comeback, which makes brass and chromatic finishes very upcoming too. The art is to get influenced by styles and try to mix and create something that nobody has seen before. Studio Peascod pulled it into a different way with the new ‘Highlight’ Collection of gilded glass.
Colours and textures
Emma Peascod played with the ancient technique of gilded glass, called verre églomisé, by mixing different colour tones, shapes and textures from simplicity of Bauhaus and cubism of Art Deco. Which resulted into the next beautiful, appealing pieces of walnut and chrome.
Gilded glass murals
Since 2011 the Peascod Studio is up and running. The design team worked on several bespoke glass pieces, which were in the beginning only decorative arts of gilding and painting chinoiserie wallpaper for residential and commercial projects. One of Emma’s amazing bespoke work is a wall mural of giant peonies that shimmer at the Skye Gyngell’s Spring restaurant, behind the bar.
From murals to furniture collection
Emma Peascod always wanted to create her own collection: “I’ve always wanted to create lighting and furniture and I love this one the most, not just because of its shape but because it includes the wood, the glass and the brass. I also like the table because it’s very simple – it’s all about showing off the glass really.”
Peascod’s inspiration source for her designs are coming from Japan, which is also her mother’s homeland. Soon she fell in love with the Japanese art of washi paper-making. This technique she combines now with verre églomisé. After 18 months of developing the furniture collection, the result is stunning! The Highlight Collection will be launched in September.
