Ben Edols and Kathy Elliott’s luminous, elegantly blown or solid-worked and intensely carved glass vessels and sculptures are reminiscent of the graceful curves and proportions of the large palm leaves that fall from the trees near their home in Australia. “We wanted to create sculptural forms with a beautiful tension and sense of rhythm, while at the same time exploiting the wonderful qualities of the glass, especially its ability to display color and texture through light,” says Elliott.
The creative partnership of glass artists Benjamin Edols and Kathy Elliott has produced some of the finest contemporary Australian glass of the last fifteen years. Their distinctive botanically-inspired blown and carved glass vessels and sculptures are in the collections of public museums around the world including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The Museum of Art and Design in New York and the National Gallery of Australia.
