Traver Gallery is proud to present Colour Connections by German-born artist Heike Brachlow. Known for her striking, kiln-cast glassworks, Brachlow explores how color, light, and material interact in this newest series of abstract sculptures. This new body of work exemplifies Brachlow’s innovative approach to glass and her unique ability to alter how we perceive color, form, space, and medium.
Born and raised in Munich, Germany, Heike Brachlow received her BA in glass 2004 from the University of Wolverhampton, her MA in 2006 and PhD in 2012 from the Royal College of Art in London. She works as a self-employed artist from her studio in Cumbria, and as an educator and lecturer, teaching at the Royal College of Art in London. Her work is represented in many museum collections including the V&A (UK), the European Museum of Modern Glass (Germany), the National Museums Scotland, and the Tacoma Museum of Glass (USA). She has won the Jerwood Maker’s Open Award in 2011 and the Glass Seller’s Arts and Crafts Award at the British Glass Biennale in 2017, and her work has been exhibited in many countries including the USA, China, Japan, Korea, Australia, Italy, and Germany.
