Kilned formed,slumped over hand made moulds incorporating photographic images

My photographic images are important to me as a way of capturing and keeping memories. They are the first tangible material along with the pebbles I collect from the seashore to be used as physical inspiration for my work in glass.

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.

Lately I devlopped stained glass without stained! A glass which suits to contemporary architecture.
"Sensitive transparency" which affects neither the transparency nor the amount of light.
The intention is to give it the power of « conversing » dynamically with its environment, by reacting to daily fluctuations and to individual translocation.
The simple act of creating some relief into that surface shapes the perception. It leads to a variation of the transmission of light, both by remodelling the view through optical effects - when looking from inside into the outside - and by distorting the reflection when looking from outside to the inside.
At night it’s the contrary!
