Elena Fleury-Rojo is behind Red Flower Glass and specialises in hot blown glass and flamework.
Elena loves the fluidity of glass and that there are many possible ways to work with it and to cold finish it (cut and polish), giving the solid end result its own specific quality. Glass is always a challenge; there are so many possible things that can go wrong. There is always something new to learn, new techniques to try or even sometimes when you think you have made a mistake, you discover a new way of looking at glass and how to work it; it just makes life more interesting.
Traveling has helped Elena to broaden her horizons and skills. Most of the influences for her blown work come from nature and the organic form, encompassing all the wonderful places that she has visited and the amazing natural world that she has seen. With her flamework, Elena keeps it quirky and fun.
