Ellie Burton

Ever since the first induction into the hot glass workshop, Ellie has fallen in love with the material. She is fascinated by the fluidity of hot glass and the control required to work with it. Ellie enjoys allowing the material to dictate the work in a natural way, finding particular interest in the effect colour can have on the form of a piece. These pieces have been developed through experimenting with layering different colours both solid, and frit, to see how it affects the final form.

Ellie is inspired by the concept of urban decay. The way man made structures become forgotten about and left to Mother Nature to reclaim. She plans to continue exploring the way glass dictates its final form in a natural way, and also how she can further express the reclamation of urban spaces by Mother Nature.

Ellie graduated in 2017 and is based in Oxfordshire.
