Alex Blakey is a three-dimensional designer working predominantly in glass. She likes to bring a sense of history or narrative back into the items that she produces, so that they form a human connection with the people associated with them. She uses glass to create ghosts of objects and places, memories and times that have passed.
"If we can collect a million brilliant memories in our lifetime then we are richer than any amount of money could make us, for when it comes to the end it is not money but memories that we all take with us. My work aims to promote this way of thinking and entrap memories within glass for all of time."
These pieces of work are created from the historical narrative contained within the book, preserving it for all to see whilst at the same time, deconstructing the book and representing its message in a differnet medium.
