Elliot studied at the Australian National University Art School, Specializing in furniture making, he spent three years plus an honours year perfecting the craft of design and construction. Studying under the head of workshop Rodney Hayward in the Furniture / Wood Department, Elliot completed his BVA with first class honours in 2007.
Heavily influenced by the artistic environment and involvement in complimentary studies in Sculpture, Life Drawing, Tool Making, Art Theory, Ceramics, Gold & Silver Smithing, Photography and Textiles, his work developed quirkiness and carried a conceptual context.
Relocating to Melbourne in 2008, Elliot continued to explore other material mediums and manufacturing techniques in set construction, upholstery, art deco reproductions, veneer lamination and metal fabrication, within commercial setting, allowing industry experiences and exposure.
Elliot currently operates his designer / maker business out of his studio space in Box Hill, Victoria and Tutors at the Melbourne School of Fine Woodworking.
Elliot is continually striving to produce both functional and conceptual designs to create interesting and innovative urban stories. Central to this philosophy is his desire to unite high quality materials and contemporary construction methods in the production of objects.
