Still Life with Shrimp




H 42 cm W 15 cm D 15 cm


Handblown & sculpted glass




'Still life with shrimp' is from the British artist Elliot Walker's ongoing body of unique still life artworks.

Freehand sculpted in clear glass with iridescent detail, the piece incorporates an elegant goblet filled with prawns and crushed ice (clear glass) with a single seashell. The artwork comes with its own plinth created from MDF coated in micro cement. The prawn's antennae are created from acrylic.

Each unique component is painstakingly created from glass and although in the artist's vision there is a set way these should be displayed; Walker also invites the individual to reposition the pieces as they choose. These are shipped as separate components and will need placing together to create the final artwork.

Combining exceptional glass making skills with a novelist’s ability for storytelling, Walker literally sculpts his glass, creating artworks that are the essence of curiosity, inviting the viewer closer. 

His Still Life compositions have the poise of classical paintings. Symbols of domestic life are carefully balanced with the transient. Luscious exotic fruits and foods are bisected revealing their richly coloured interiors, these will never decay but are permanently held in this fleeting moment. 

The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
