3D ceramic, wood and stone - 2D life studies in pastel
Alison works from her studio in Brighton Open Market creating sculpture and ceramic vessels and teaching adults and children handbuilding skills in clay.
A teacher turned artist, Alison takes her inspiration from the human form and the human condition. Life drawing is at the root of her artistic practice and her 3D work stems from it.
She works in a variety of media; ceramics, wood, metal and stone, as well as continuing to experiment in 2D, developing techniques and the range of materials she uses.
She likes to work in recycled materials and has used rotted tree stumps as the basis of her sculpture, sometimes melding the carved wood with forged, cast and etched metal
