Graduating in 2009 with a BA Hons in Ceramics and Glass, Elizabeth went on to complete the Hot-glass Techniques course at Bournemouth and Poole College in 2010. She now works at her studio in Angmering, West Sussex, designing and making various flame-worked and hand-blown pieces.
Elizabeth’s work is inspired by the natural world. In her elegant and colourful menageries, each creature has its own quirky character. On the basis of reference photos from research trips and drawings of initial ideas, she makes her pieces entirely by hand, using an oxygen and propane torch, a few tools, and coloured borosilicate glass (a hard glass similar to Pyrex). Larger work incorporates both hot-glass disciplines by creating colour overlay vessels to frame and hold her delicate lamp-worked sculptures. Elizabeth is very happy to discuss commissions; she also offers one-to-one tuition in her Angmering studio.
