Emma Peascod presented last Summer at Milan Design Week the latest collection by the Peascod Studio called Highlight Collection. The studio was founded in 2011, after she returned from Japan, where she has learned ancient handcraft techniques like washi (paper-making), as well as gilded glass techniques.
Peascod Studio is known worldwide precisely because of their works in gilded glass (verre églomisé), a technique used in the Pre-Roman era but become famous again in the 18th century because of Jean-Baptiste Glomy, a decorator and art dealer their aesthetics combine textures and materials from Japanese culture and the reinvented techniques of gilded glass.
The Peascod Studio presented the latest collection which was meticulously designed in brass and wood. Each piece is available in a wide variety of surface finishes and with an elegant selection of inimitable glass works.
“She created effects that veer between the patina of a lichen-dappled wall to the painterly and the cosmic, in shades of jade, emerald and coral. These are framed succinctly by brass elements or combined with light sycamore, or darker walnut wood, in designs that reference the simplicity of Bauhaus with a touch of cubist-flavoured art deco.”
An interesting example of her work can be appreciated at the Spring restaurant, owned by Skye Gyngell. Regarding this project Emma Peascod said: “That was a lovely project. Skye is obviously Australian and I’d grown up in Australia, the interior designer was Australian and my aesthetic just really suited them.”
And she continued saying: “We understood each other really quickly and Skye has such a strong vision for what she wanted to do. The interiors complement her food so well.”
