Glass Wall Art Sculpture ‘Antithesis Red’ by Elena Fleury-Rojo
Elena Fleury-Rojo adds to her wonderful ‘Antithesis’ series with this glass wall art sculpture. This magnificent piece features the ‘coral’ in flaming red, orange and yellow colours. The black base sets off these bright colours to perfection.
Add drama and elegance to your walls when you choose this glass wall art sculpture. Position in a space where you can enjoy it every day and can also be viewed by all those who visit. This piece will draw many admiring comments and will certainly prove to be an active discussion point.
This piece complements the two others in the range perfectly. It works beautifully as a stand-alone piece, but of course, will create greater impact when partnered with the others in the series.
Glass Wall Art Sculpture 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.”
