I enjoy collaborating with other artists and working as a creative consultant on projects large and small. These challenges often present new challenges and refreshingly new ways of working. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to talk about a creative brief.
The Royal Free Hospital – ‘The Meditating Brain’
I collaborated with artist Tom Wilkinson to create this piece for the Royal Free Hospital – ‘The Meditating Brain’. A female member of the radiology department had an MRI scan whilst meditating. This became the basis of the image used in the piece.
600 complexly-shaped pieces of glass were cut with a water jet and used in this piece. As well as consulting on the project, I soldered the panel together using the Tiffany copper-foil technique to accommodate the intricate shapes.
Backlit on the wall of the Radiology reception area, it has been much-admired.
Proposal for St. John’s Church, Bury St. Edmonds, Suffolk – ‘Stations of the Cross’
I worked with artist Mark Cazalet on ‘Stations of the Cross’; two fused glass ‘roundels’ based on one of his paintings for St. John’s Church, Bury St. Edmonds, Suffolk. The left-hand side roundel is Mark’s and the right-hand side roundel is my interpretation. Although we did not win the commission, it was an interesting experiment to have two artists working on the same image.
Manchester Cathedral – ‘Flight’
I worked with artist Mark Cazelet to create three stained glass windows – ‘Flight’ 2014 for Fraser’s Chapel, Manchester Cathedral (150cm x 200cm).
“Beverly acted as consultant, technician, cutter, fabricator and solderer. A wonderful collaboration that was very fruitful and enjoyable.”
