Drawing on inspiration of the juxtaposition created by opposing natural elements such as Fire & Ice, when it erupts from the earth’s core, it is the drop in temperature that dictates the sculptural formation of stone. By incorporating a microcosm of this natural phenomena, into wearable silver jewellery that weaves together concepts from natural landscapes to Classical Greek mythology.

Rachel Elliott
Rachel Elliott makes glass creatures, cutting their silhouettes in thick clear glass using the innovative technology of water-jet cutting. Although they all start the same, each one is individually screen-printed by hand with enamels, which are then fired in the kiln. The prints are inspired by the creatures themselves, their natural habitats but also other whimsical narratives and ideas from my imagination, making each one unique.
