elliot walker: blown glass still life

London’s Elliot Walker is anything but still, but the glass artist has been busy creating blown glass still life sculptures that will make you look twice. Highly textured dark vessels do double duty, first as sculptural pieces, and then again as bold backdrops for the brightly colored glass fruits. Brilliant.

“In my pillows, I play with associations of softness, comfort, and lightness, while simultaneously expressing the seemingly contradictory properties of hardness, discomfort, and weight.”

Awakening: Metamorphosis of Protective Thoughts

“My experiences as a woman, wife, and mother drive my exploration of feminine themes in my artwork. I play with the meaning of familiar objects, and create space for feminine viewpoints. I am fundamentally nurturing and supportive, and I manifest these characteristics in my sculptural collages.”

Ayrton describes her work as tiny stages – sets that allow the viewer to project their own story. I love this!

She creates the sculptures, made of sandcasted glass with metal inclusions, by making tiny, delicate wire and metal mesh scenes, encasing the wire model between two layers of hot glass.
