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 we endeavour to hold those memories and the emotions they evoke, in beautiful, handcrafted glass. Alx Creations is one of the UK’s leading glass artists. At Alx Creations, Glass artist Alex Blakey takes pride in the creation of each individual piece ensuring that the work she creates is as individual as its owner. She works on a large range of both small and large scale glass works. The inspiration for most of her work comes from a combination of history and memories. History and memories create a human connection to both objects and spaces.

about me

Alex Blakey

Alex Blakey – Managing Director I have had a passion for art my whole life. I trained in Three Dimensional Design, at Manchester Metropolitan University. It was here that I developed a passion for glass. I went to London to learn more about the industrial glass industry first hand. I then moved to Slaithwaite where I completed some business training before setting up Alx Creations. Since setting up Alx Creations I have expanded my knowledge of glass. I love the challenge of working on a wide range of projects and experimenting with new techniques.
