Bridging Light By Fiat Elson Unique H 50 W 39.5 D 6 cm Cast glass . New British Glass exhibition at Vessel Gallery until 24th December 2019 . . . Elson's work is expressive in its form, provoking an emotional and intellectual response. It explores our emotive worlds, experiences and memories make us who we are. "We all have several sides to our personalities, consciously or unconsciously we reveal or keep them hidden. This concept is expressed through the use of curves, angles and space." Each piece has a relationship with the interior and exterior structure, bending, distorting and refracting light, creating a dynamic energy between colour and form. The space between the pieces is very specific, not too wide as to separate them and not too close to join as one. "The fissure creates a tension, pushing and pulling representing the constant contradictions of persona, negative and positive, harmony and discord, clarity and obscurity, whilst the inner space of the lenses and grooves represent our private sides, a place you are not always allowed in, an inner sanctuary."

The piece entitled Oracle had a makeover of sorts when photographer James Glossop decided to light it for dramatic effect for an article in The Times. The piece was being prepared for exhibition at the Scottish Gallery in Edingburgh but has since gone to the Liuli Gallery in Taipei and will be in Shanghai from April 2020.
September saw Fiaz flying to Taipei to open a show at the famous Liuli Gallery.
The show was well received and was openned by the superstar David Tao.
Many of the pieces exhibited were recreated in minature using sugar. What amazing intricate work, very popular with the sweet toothed visitors.
I’m excited to announce the opening of The Glass Foundry which will be a school of glass, a design and production house and a centre for excellence in kiln cast, cold worked glass.
We will soon be –
- advertising a programme of training and masterclasses at every level
- recruiting two interns
- producing a range of tableware, furniture, lighting and garden ornaments
