Elliot Walker is a London based sculptor who uses molten glass as his medium.

 

Producing works of luminous quality and eggshell delicacy, Elliot aims to transform liquid glass into unexpected forms and figures.

 

Elliot is one of a handful of glassblowers in the world who focus on figurative sculpture. Sculpting in molten glass is known as the Messello technique, and working this way requires extreme dexterity, speed and precise temperature control.

 

‘A theme that runs through all of my work is the presence of a skin, either as a container of things, a veneer to hide things or as a protective layer to shield vulnerable things’

 

‘My passion is for glass, I could never ask to work with a more challenging and rewarding material, it’s full of contradictions and surprises’

 

Elliot Walker is one of the UK’s finest rising glass stars and in his relatively short artistic career, has already become one of the most talented and inspiring glass artists of his generation.
