A New Beginning: Elbo's Feature Glass Showcase at Purple Haze
A couple weeks ago, world renowned functional glass artist Elbo (@elboglass on Instagram) dropped in at Purple Haze to showcase his latest work in a solo feature glass show titled 'A New Beginning'.
Something Elbo has become known for during his time as a functional glass artist is his amazing functional sculptural work; especially pertaining to that of anatomically accurate representations of dinosaurs. Elbo's Dino work has persisted but evolved immensely over the last several years. After a certain stint with one style or species of dinosaur sculpted pipe, Elbo moves on to his next feature species to perfect.
Elbo is always innovating and challenging himself with glassblowing, always constantly evolving. His latest undertaking is working on perfecting the technique of ' disk flips' or more simply defined as as drawing illustrations on glass with glass. The technique of creating a 'disk flip' or 'flip' is a tedious and very highly skilled process.
