Rachel Elliott

Rachel works with kiln-formed glass in her home studio in Glasgow, Scotland making sculpture and gifts, She also teaches short classes in various glass making techniques.

She is inspired by the intricate details of life and her work is essentially a representational comment on the world surrounding us as well as a constant challenge to her technical abilities. Mostly working with kiln-formed glass, which essentially requires great planning and preparing of the glass, whether that is with molds or applying enamels, prior to placing it in the kiln and programming it to heat and cool the glass in a certain way. It can sometimes take weeks to prepare a firing and unexpected things can occur, but it is this troubleshooting element that Rachel relishes and keeps her engaged with the material.
