Elliot Walker, winner and star of the Netflix programme, Blown Away 2, was set a challenge by London Glassblowing Studio to create a sculpture in celebration of the incredible work done by our NHS during the Pandemic. The challenge that London Glassblowing chose, to set Elliot, was ‘Collective Endeavour: In the Face of Adversity’.
“The idea of making a spool of thread allowed me not only to reference the various emotional reactions to the pandemic, through the use of colour, but also gave me the opportunity to add an element of performance art into the process. The final addition of the needle to complete the piece also refers to our fervent hope that the vaccination will help to relieve the current, but necessary restrictions we are all living under.” - Elliot Walker
Elliot has made three limited edition versions of Threads. Each of the three editions has a different colourway with its own circular glass base and each version will be an edition of only 25. Elliot will sign, title, and inscribe the edition number on every piece.
