Pyramid Gallery is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2022. In that period, Peter Layton has taken part in many exhibitions of glass at Pyramid Gallery and for at least 30 years has constantly been represented by the gallery. As have many associates of London Glassblowing.

To celebrate 40 years of promoting British studio glass, this show will display 40 pieces of art glass that have a connection to London Glassblowing, which is itself celebrating an important anniversary – 45 years.
