Studio Peascod is internationally recognised for pioneering sumptuous surfaces produced exclusively by hand in their studios. Combining Japanese aesthetics with a love of atmospheric textures and materials, the Studio’s myriad designs reimagine the traditional verre églomisé process of reverse glass gilding.
Emma Peascod founded the Studio shortly after returning from Japan where she learnt about traditional craft techniques from some of the country’s master craftspeople. She trained in the foundations of washi paper-making in a remote mountainous region of the country. Emma’s experiments with this intricate process were formative in developing her distinct aesthetic identity. She later applied this training to develop new approaches to the production of verre églomisé.
Emma has been designing bespoke glass pieces for interior and architectural projects for over a decade, her pieces can be found in numerous public spaces including Spring at Somerset House, Four Seasons Hotel Dubai, Hotel Adlon Kempinksi Berlin, Hotel de Paris Monte Carlo, Flemings Hotel Mayfair, The Institute of Directors, The Heron, Number One Hyde Park, Smythson, Harvey Nichols as well as in many private residences and yachts worldwide.
The Studio has been featured widely in numerous publications such as Architectural Digest France, The World of Interiors, Wallpaper*, House & Garden, Homes & Garden, Elle Decoration, Hole & Corner, The FT How to Spend It, Telegraph Luxury, Living Etc and Rum.
Studio Peascod’s verre églomisé pieces are available for interior and architectural applications. Bespoke works are developed and executed in accordance to clients’ specific briefs.
The Studio has also developed its own furniture and lighting range, the Highlight collection, which launched in 2016.
