Kathy Elliott and Benjamin Edols have been working collaboratively since 1993, transforming the tradition and craftsmanship of glass blowing into contemporary and poetic works of art.

Their free-flowing, colourful glassworks - including lights, functional bowls, vases, jugs, and of course, sculptures - have been exhibited in Australia and around the world. In 2000, Ben and Kathy built and ran a customised glass-blowing and cold working studio that ran for 12 years, which the Australian Design Centre believes was a major influence on the practice of then-emerging artists such as Alexandra Chambers, Masahiro Asaka, Luke Mount and many more.
