Heike Brachlow


Born and raised in Munich, Germany, Heike Brachlow started working with glass in Rotorua, New Zealand, as an apprentice in a small studio.  Having received her BA in 2004 from the University of Wolverhampton, her MA in 2006 and her PhD  in 2012 from the Royal College of Art in London,she primarily works as a self employed artist and educator teaching glass at Havering College, in Essex and, one a year, at the studio of the Corning Museum of Glass.

Heike's often precariously balanced sculptures aim to physically engage  the viewer becomes toucher - invited by words or form, boldly or guiltily. Colour is an important part of her work; the exploration of the interaction of colour, form and light is solid transparent glass during her PhD reserach has led her to producing her own glass colours, adding metal oxides to the glass batch during the melting process.  This enables her to create a personal palette, which consists mostly of subtle tones and polychromatic colours, being colours that change in different types of light.  Her work reflects her attraction to movement and transformation, both in colour and form.
