Since childhood a passion for art has driven me to experiment with a variety of media finally concentrating on glass. For 8 years I worked in repair and conservation work simultaneously developing skills in other glass related sectors. I teach traditional lead and copper foiling, fusing, mosaic and glass painting techniques.
Beveridge works from her studio on architectural commissions, installations and sculpture in glass. She has exhibited and taught in Europe and the United States and co-authored two books on kiln-formed glass and mosaic. In 2003 she won the New Talent Prize in the Jutta Cuny-Franz Memorial Award, for sculpture in glass.
Organiser of the twice-yearly National Glass Fair and the new glass fair at Knebworth House. These specialist events feature around 80 exhibitors selling antique and collectable glass alongside contemporary glass artists showing their own work.
History lies around us
Memories lie within us
Both are moments in time
Some are ephemeral; some are carved in our souls
At Alx Creations I endeavour to hold those memories and the emotions they evoke, in beautiful, handcrafted glass. I work on a range of pieces from architectural glass and public art to smaller works of art for the home and jewellery. I am also available to create bespoke pieces for a range of customers and run one to one workshops.
