This unique exhibition acted as a celebration of one of the United Kingdom's most treasured talents, Elliot Walker.
Having joined the studio from university, Elliot's evident artistry with glassblowing was nurtured and developed, which allowed him to go on to participate and win the Netflix show Blown Away 2. He has experienced immeasurable success ever since, having featured in exhibitions and galleries globally.
In 2021, Elliot returned to the place of his origin for a special one-off show that shines a spotlight on his significant work and presence within the glass art sector.
He was joined by partner Bethany Wood, with whom Elliot works closely on a lot of his pieces, and Laura Hart in the exhibition. Bethany, an established artist herself, has been creating glass art for the past seven years, whilst simultaneously assisting Elliot and teaching the craft to newcomers. Meanwhile, Laura utilises blown bases created by Elliot to add her own stunning glass floral embellishments. Both of these wonderful artists showcased their pieces alongside Elliot in this beautifully curated exhibition.
We hosted a live virtual demonstration from Elliot and Beth, where they showcased their craft at the furnace with an engaging live-streamed demonstration.
