Alan Glasby O.B.E, G.M.
1945 – 2008
Alan Glasby was born in Derbyshire and educated at Chesterfield Grammar School for Boys. He began a career as an explosives engineer that spanned 35 years. In 1974 he was awarded the George Medal for bomb disposal duties and in 1991 he received the O.B.E for his work in the Gulf War.
A keen competitive sportsman, his main interest was target rifle shooting; major achievements in this area were the winning of two National Championships, a World Championship team Gold medal and Her Majesty the Queens Medal for champion shot in the British Army.
Although interested in wildlife and art from an early age, it was not until 1988 that Alan decided to ‘have a go’ at carving and sculpture. With no formal artistic carving or sculptural training he developed his own carving style and methods, each piece displays its own unique presence and character. Alan’s final works are produced and patinated by Andrew as limited edition bronze.
Commissions include a life sized Goshawk that was presented to the Oman School of Aircraft control by HRH Prince Andrew, a half size Golden Eagle for the Royal Auxiliary Air Force for presentation to Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II to mark 50 years as Air Commodore-in-Chief, a snipe for the RSPB for annual presentation as an award for Wetlands Conservation and a Sandpiper for the Scottish charity ‘The Sandpiper Trust’.
Andrew was born in Ashford, Middlesex and was educated at the Duke of York’s Royal Military Boarding School. Andrew’s first passion was cricket and whilst at school had county trials for Kent and in 1987 was selected for the Lord’s Taverners award course at Lords. Andrew won the Military Cup and was also Drum Major of the school’s 100 strong military band.
In 1992 Andrew joined The Cambridge Food Company and enjoyed 15 years helping to build a very successful business becoming Sales Director and co-owner.
Although fascinated by his father’s amazing sculpting journey, Andrew had no sculpting experience and had only watched Alan ‘in action’ on several occasions. It wasn’t until Alan suddenly passed away in 2008 that Andrew decided to produce his father’s work and like Alan, he discovered he had a hidden ability and passion for sculpting birds. Over the last 7 years he has sculpted over 25 original limited edition bronzes.
Andrew has a lifelong passion for martial arts and has been training from a very young age. He holds a 6th degree black belt in ITF Tae Kwon Do and runs a school in Peterborough.
Andrew exhibit his works in galleries and at various shows throughout the country. He lives in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and has been married to Natalie for 15 years. They have two sons, Jamie and Louis.
