Pippa Beveridge

“We live in a society that sanctifies memory, keeping traces of each story and each object sometimes obsessively. My own work questions the notion of temporality: absence and displacement, identity and a sense of belonging. I chose to work in glass because of the wide range of lyrical messages it can convey and use a variety of techniques to express ideas which originate in a practical and poetic sense from its properties.”

Pippa Beveridge is a glass and mixed media artist with a BA in Landscape Architecture from Greenwich University and an MFA in the Theory and Practice of Art and Design in Architecture from the University of East London. She studied fine art at the Massana Art School in Barcelona and advanced techniques in glass at the Barcelona Glass Foundation, where she also taught.

She has lectured at colleges in the USA and Europe and organised international artists’ workshops in Barcelona and the USA. She was the director of the Syracuse University Abroad Visual Arts Programme for several years and has given master classes at the MusVerre, Sars-Poteries (France); Urban Glass and the Studio at Corning (USA); and the Glass Hub (UK).

Her work ranges from small sculptural pieces to large-scale installations and architectural glass. Architectural details, surface decoration, wallpapers and the natural world provide sources of inspiration.

Pippa has received a number of grants for curating and exhibiting her work abroad, and prizes, including the Jutta Cuny Franz Memorial New Talent Award. She spent ten weeks on an artist’s residency at Musverre, France culminating in a solo show. Her work is held in private and public collections, including Musverre, Sars-Poteries, the European Museum of Modern Glass, Rödental and the Museum of Contemporary Glass, Madrid.

Her commissions in glass include work for an exhibition by the Enric Miralles Practice and glass walls for an office in Barcelona. She is currently working on a project for the Scotland-based charity Pamis to create sites of memory and remembrance throughout Scotland.
