Miss Elizabeth Welch

By making both Blown Glass and Flameworked Glass I am able to express my emotions in a creative manner. Molten Glass is magical, by working with its natural tendencies in the flame I create whimsical and imaginative sculptures and jewellery pieces.

Details about work or recent projects

I began my fascination with glass in 2009, graduating with Ceramics and Glass from Bucks New University.
Glass is both a solid and a liquid, it is beautiful and fragile, yet can be dangerous and strong, it is a magical material in both its molten and solid state.
Working with Hot Glass forces me to intuitively and actively engage with the material. Each piece is a partnership between myself and the material. The connection between my mind and my hands, the flow of the material and my own emotions results in a piece of work that expresses my inner self.
