Mark Eliott’s glass art practice spans biological representation, sculptural abstraction, mythology and glass-animation. Many of his works are illustrations of his story writing and are often influenced by synaesthesia which includes visual music, coloured alphabet and numerals. Mark is a resident at 107.
"As a glassblower, I almost stopped making glass animals because I wanted to project myself as the ‘serious Artist’ until I realised that I could have my cake and eat it too. I love making glass animals and don’t care about the kitsch associations. My intention is to honour our magnificent yet often frail wildlife while making affordable, collectable objects for my friends to which they can relate in a very immediate way."
