Born and raised in Munich, Germany, Heike Brachlow received her BA in glass 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 from her studio at Parndon Mill, and as an educator and lecturer, teaching at the Royal College of Art and institutions such as the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass and Pilchuck Glass School. Her work is represented in many museum collections including the European Museum of Modern Glass (Art Collection of the Veste Coburg), the National Museums Scotland, Glasmuseum Hentrich, and the Tacoma Museum of Glass. 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.

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: her PhD research focused exploring the interaction of colour, form and light in solid transparent glass. Her work reflects her attraction to movement and transformation, both in colour and form
