Elliot Walker Glassblower

Blown away by glass

  • • Elliot has a bachelor's in psychology from Bangor University
  • • He is a winner of the second season of the Netflix hit show, Blown Away
  • • He has mastered a rare technique called massello

If the world of crafts had its celebrities like the entertainment industry, Elliot Walker would be that person. Netflix has a glassblowing show called Blown Away and he won it going through 10 intense episodes. But it’s the only parallel with Hollywood to make here, the glassblowing is not like partying in Los Angeles, it takes years of theory and practice as well as a meticulous understanding of the craft and precise execution. Elliot has all that, along with charisma and endless energy to go further, achieve more, and create better. His objects are pure glass magic, masterful, witty, and slick. Elliot is one of the most important new glass artists in the UK, a rising star that uses his media platform to promote the craft and inspire new generations of artisans.
