Elliot's approach to glassblowing is predominantly sculptural, inspired by flowing, natural, abstract forms, he attempts to push the boundaries of his skills to develop complex techniques and processes which require precision and timing. Elliot bases his work on hot-glass processes, using tools to manipulate and stretch the molten liquid to create elegant and sleek glass sculptures.
Alongside making sculptural glass pieces, Elliot also makes limited-edition vases and plates, drawing from the inspiration behind his sculptures in order to create luxurious display items for many different settings.
Elliot is a current student at Manchester School of Art, studying a BA (Hons) in Product design and Craft.
