Elizabeth Welch

Elizabeth creates highly detailed borosilicate glass sculptures of animals particularly bird insect and marine life. Each piece made made entirely by hand using coloured borosilicate glass rods which are melted in a high oxygen and propane flame. each piece is annealed in an electrically controlled kiln for lasting strength and durability. By building layers of opaque and transparent glasses she has developed her own recognisable style of flame worked glass. Working from images of animals and breaking down the forms into simple shapes before filling in the details Elizabeth creates quirky contemporary lamp worked sculptures.
