About The Work
Elliot draws inspiration from an eclectic range of sources; abandonment, the human figure, environmental catastrophe and fine art, including the magnificent Still Lives by the great masters of the Flemish and Dutch Schools of painting.
Originally a student of psychology, he believes our understanding of the mind and its true effects on the body are derived from theoretical constructs. This naturally translates into his glass sculptures, where the representation of the human figure has always been a significant aspect of his work. Leaving the objective truth open to interpretation, Elliot treats the glass as a surface to sculpt, as well as a material with accessible depth and mystery.
His versatility and inventiveness place him firmly among the most accomplished of glass artists working in hot glass today.
