Beasley was born in Los Angeles and was
first introduced to metalworking at school before attending
Dartmouth College and the University of California, Berkeley.
He then bought an old warehouse in 1962,

invent new processes.
For this exhibition, he has worked closely
with Pangolin's affiliated foundry, Pangolin Editions in
Gloucestershire, to produce a limited edition work.
Beasley does his initial designs using a
3D computer software system, which he helped to create.
The bronzes are in editions of between six
and 12 and prices range from £500 to £77,500.
