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.

Wilma Wyss worked as a print designer for twenty years before she began creating concrete and mosaic sculptures. She calls her Pillow Series and Fluid Sculpture Series ‘visual contrivances, illusions of flimsy and fluidity and three-dimensional trompe l-oeils’.
Rust Easy Pillow
“In my pillows, I play with associations of softness, comfort, and lightness, while simultaneously expressing the seemingly contradictory properties of hardness, discomfort, and weight.”
Going Back In Time
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.”

The UK’s Jenny Ayrton tries to see the world from the perspective of her young daughter as she creates domestic scenes, capturing miniature wonderlands in molten glass.
Autumn Bike Ride
Ayrton describes her work as tiny stages – sets that allow the viewer to project their own story. I love this!
Rotary Washing Line
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.
