Red Glass Vessel ‘Red Coral’ by Elena Fleury Rojo

Red glass vessel ‘Red Coral’ by Elena Fleury Rojo is a stark warning about the future of coral reefs.

Part of the new collection entitled ‘Message in a Bottle’ the idea is to get the message out about coral bleaching and the impact of humans’ rampaging use of fossil fuels on the whole earth.

Coral reefs are at the beating heart of the ocean ecosystem and provide shelter to numerous species of fish and other sea life.

Combining delicate glass coral made using flameworking with hand-blown glass bottles, Elena attempts to convey the urgency of the message.

Red Glass 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 deals with human impact on nature.
