Glenis Devereux MCSD ARBS
Glenis is an internationally acknowledged Commercial
Sculptor, now making her mark in the world of Fine Art Sculpture. Self-trained
and freelance, she works in a traditional style specialising in figurative
work, with the main emphasis being on grace and elegance of face and form.
Her very first sculpture - a life-size bust of Elvis
Presley cast in bronze - was successfully auctioned at Sotheby's, New
Bond Street, London. Although initially sculpted for personal reasons,
this work heralded the start of her professional career.
Glenis has been commissioned over the years to design
and sculpt for many major international companies and institutions, which
include Royal Worcester, Spode, Coalport, Boehme (UK) Danbury Mint, Franklin
Mint, Ashton-Drake (USA) and The Chelsea Flower Show, London. Please view
a few past commercial works under heading: Devereux
Her experience in the design of fine English bone china
and porcelain figurines, led her to develop a very unique and personal
service whereby, working from sketches or photos, she can create an exquisite
bone china replica figurine of a Bride in her own bridal gown. Photos
of a sample Personal Commemorative Figurine and a Personal Commemorative
Bridal Vase may be viewed under heading: Bridal
& Wedding Heirloom Keepsakes.
While to date Glenis has free lanced, creating designs
for commercial reproduction and worldwide distribution, in more recent
years she has concentrated on her Limited
Edition Bronze figurative works. Her development of a series of finely
detailed period 'Bathers' is ongoing, these having become something of
a Devereux signature theme. It is a subject which allows her scope to
portray a combination of the most endearing of feminine traits: sensuality,
beauty, serenity and elegance but always with an underlying sense of strength.
is the antithesis of all things feminine and an opportunity to demonstrate
an ability in portraying the male with his intrinsic masculine traits.
Pan’s wicked yet mischievously handsome countenance should strike
a cord with males and females alike.
A whimsical departure from figurative themes is her sculpture
entitled 'A Very Special Bird'
(a golden bronze egg, on dark bronze twigs) an idea she has nurtured for
Her acceptance into arguably the two most prestigious
and internationally acknowledged professional societies in their field
as under, is testimony to her ability in spanning the diverse fields of
Industrial Design and Fine Art. She is the first (and possibly still the
only) sculptor to have been accepted into the Chartered Society of Designers.
