For one day only, Stacey Beaumont will be opening her sculpture workshop to provide an insight into her work.
Usually the workshop is too hectic and noisy for visitors but on Saturday, June 3, Stacey will be preparing work for installation at Sculpture at Beaulieu so it’s an ideal time to visit. She’s happy to provide an insight into her work, materials and inspiration.
In her sculpture, Stacey explores the transitional effect of light through glass, studying the changing natural rhythms that surround us to capture an energy which transforms installations into works that are dynamic and responsive to their environments.
She primarily uses reclaimed local Delabole slate to create texture, form and structure for her sculptures. Beach-combing the Cornish coast provides Stacey more than just inspiration, and found objects often bring their own stories and character to pieces.
Glass is hand-selected from specialist and artisan suppliers with each new project in mind. Her works are truly unique and cannot be exactly replicated or cast due to the materials and creative processes she employs.
Also on display will be some of Stacey’s garden tables, which usually comprise local reclaimed slate, fossils, sea-glass and other beach-found items.
Stacey is strongly influenced by the stunning natural environment surrounding her workshop on the north Cornish coast, as well as her childhood in Africa and travels since.
