Elaine B

Elaine B

Elaine Butcher grew up in Denver and studied in Oregon before finishing her fine arts degree in metalworking and glassblowing at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Elaine enjoys the trial and error of comfort and design in making functional work. It begins with an idea and ends with a well-designed piece, with a lot of experimentation in between. How does it move? How does it feel when you wear it? Figuring out how to construct each piece, working out the kinks and perfecting the design is all part of the process. Elaine works out of a small studio in downtown Charlottesville, VA. Many of her materials are milled from recycled metals, and all of the design and construction is done by hand in her own Elaine B studio.
