In this week’s podcast, we talk with champion glass blower, Elliot Worker. A talented visual storyteller, Elliot’s work as a British sculptor and glassblower earned him a place on the second season of the Netflix series, Blown Away.
Elliot was drawn to the arts from his childhood, and began glass blowing in high school, after an opportunity to get involved in an after school club piqued his interest. In the last decade, he has become a successfully skilled craftsman in his field of glass art, and was selected to take part in the prestigious glass blowing competition, which he went on to win.
We hear about Elliot’s focus and experimentation with sculpting molten glass- the extremely challenging and intense experience that demands consummate skill, dexterity and speed working at extremely high temperatures. His versatility and inventiveness place him firmly among the most accomplished of glass artists working in hot glass today.
Prepare to be blown away!
