Blown Away season 2: Finale explored
Just two out of the ten initial contestants made it to the Blown Away season 2 finale.
The finale saw a glassblowing face-off between Cat Burns and Elliot Walker. The two artists had to fill half of the gallery space with original designs, created and blown in just eight hours. Both designers were able to choose the theme for their work.
Nick Uhas told Cat and Elliot that they were looking for “cohesive, original and immersive experience that will truly blow us away.”
The guest judge for the finale was Rob Cassetti. Rob Cassetti is the senior director of creative strategy at the Corning Museum of Glass.
Blown Away season 2: Winner revealed
- Elliot Walker
The winner of Blown Away season 2 is Elliot Walker.
Elliot Walker’s final design was centred on the idea of inept tools. He created oversized screwdrivers and hammers which resembled balloons. Feeling daunted by the task at hand, Elliot’s installation idea came from his own feelings of “not having the tools” to complete the task. It’s title was “Bodge Job.”

Elliot Walker is still making and exhibiting his glass art. In fact, Elliot has a show opening on January 26th, 2021 at Messums Wiltshire. You will be able to view Elliot’s show online on their website.
