Edols Elliott – Artist Biography

ARTISTS STATEMENT

We work within the traditions of the Decorative Arts and are concerned with issues of craftsmanship and skill. We make the objects we like to see in the world and are building a body of work that we hope will be coherent as it evolves over time. We work with glass for many reasons. For Ben it is a strong attraction to the process of working in the Venetian style of glassblowing. For me I am inspired to work with glass by what is possible in terms of carving and decorating the forms and working with the light to generate a breathtaking effect. For us glass is a medium for colour and light as well as an opportunity to explore design and we look for ways to use these uplifting elements in ways that are original.
