How was it made? Glass-blowing

Inspired by traditional oil paintings, sculptor Elliot Walker works with molten glass at extreme temperatures and high speed to create unique 3D still-life sculptures. Step inside his studio to see how each stage of this challenging process unfolds, as he creates a new work made up of three-dimensional sliced fish, in response to a tiny fragment of a Middle-Eastern glass beaker in our collection.
