The winner of the second series of the Netflix programme Blown Away has recreated his winning piece for an exhibit at the gallery which trained him in the art of glassblowing.

Elliot Walker came out on top in the programme back in January this year, where contestants compete to test their skills in glassblowing.

London Glassblowing’s Best in Glass event will see Elliot exhibit the renowned Bodge Job piece which saw him soar to victory in the final round of the competition, alongside other new pieces he has created over the last 12 months.

Elliot first began working under the mentorship of Peter Layton - the UK’s oldest glassblower at 84 - in 2013 after Peter spotted him doing an art demonstration at Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire.

He worked at the Bermondsey Street studio for seven years, fine-tuning his craft.

The 33-year-old has gone from strength to strength since then, culminating in his triumph on the Netflix series.

What will Elliot showcase at the event?

He will put on a show with his partner Bethany Wood, who have worked together for the past five year, on October 9 where the couple will create one of Beth’s Molten Landscapes pieces live on camera.

Elliot described how he would be happy to revisit the piece that helped him win Blown Away, so he could make some improvements

“A lot of the sculpting was a lot cruder than I would have liked and I’m a stickler for details, so I always planned to revisit this piece from the show,” he said.

“It will be great to share the work with the UK audiences as well, as we’ve been doing so much work with people in the US after the show that it’s great to bring it home.”

Founder of London Glassblowing and studio glass art pioneer, Peter Layton, said he was over the moon to welcome Elliot back to the studio for the show celebrating his success.

He said: “Elliot was a delight to mentor - and it’s absolutely wonderful to have him back in the gallery and studio showcasing his latest work.

“This is set to be a show not to be missed.”

The Best in Glass event runs at London Glassblowing, in-gallery and online, between October 5 and 30.
