Glass Coral Vessel ‘Amber Fan Coral’ by Elena Fleury Rojo

Strikingly beautiful glass coral vessel ‘Amber Fan Coral’ by Elena Fleury Rojo.

Drawing attention to the bleaching of coral reefs around the world, this collection of glass vessels is part of Elena’s ‘Message in a Bottle’ series. The series sends out a message to those nature lovers among us that we need to change our ways now otherwise it will be too late for the reefs and maybe too late for us too. A terrible thought.

Made using flameworked coral pieces set inside a handmade glass bottle, these pieces are designed to prod us into action—to do our small bit to help stave off the extinction of these wonderful ecosystems.

Glass Coral Vessel Artist

Elena Fleury-Rojo glass artist is an exceptional British flameworker and glass blower.

Elena graduated from Buckinghamshire University in 2008 with a BA (Hons) in glassblowing. While at the New Designers graduation shows, Elena was hand-picked from 2,500 graduates for the New Designers SELECTION

After graduation, Elena headed to Wanganui Glass School in New Zealand, where she worked as a Hot Glass Tutorial Assistant. 

Wanganui was a huge influence on Elena’s work and helped her fall in love with flameworking. In 2011, in her first competitive foray, she won first prize at the GBUK Glass Bead Competition.

Based at her specialised flameworking studio in Colchester, England, her glass works are so diverse, ever-changing, and developing, from organic sculptural pieces to mixed media to functional pieces with a unique flair.

Her works have been showcased at the Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green, Hertfordshire, and have been met with glowing feedback. Elena produces her increasingly popular works under the Red Flower Glass brand.

In 2013, Elena’s glass daisies were featured in the Saatchi Gallery as part of Layne Row’s Hardware series.

In 2014, Elena was accepted on an internship with James Lethbridge Glass in Belgium, where she honed her borosilicate glass-making skills while working on organically flowing flameworked chandeliers.

Since then, Elena has worked on various collections inspired by her love of nature and continues to upskill in flameworking.

Elena’s recent “Reef” formations have been featured in many national publications, and a piece from the series has been selected for the contemporary glass collection to represent UK flameworking skills at Stourbridge Glass Museum.

The Arts Council England DYCP grant in 2022, awarded to Elena, enabled her to expand and study scientific glass-blowing techniques at the National Glass Centre, Sunderland, under Brian Jones, MBE.

This led to the creation of her most recent series, “Message in a Bottle”, which is concerned with the fragility of the natural world
