In 2009 she graduated from the University of Ulster with a first class Honors degree in Art and Design. Since then she has won numerous awards including first place in the category, ‘Glass Art’ at the Royal Dublin Show in 2015 and 2009, the Silver medal at the Royal Ulster Arts Club’s Annual Exhibition in 2010, the Warm Glass Prize in 2010 and 2011 and more recently the Bronze Award at Bullseye Glass’ ‘Emerge’ exhibition. Alison exhibits both locally and internationally and her work is held in several public collections.

 

About the Work

 

She employs a range of techniques to create her sculptures, working with cast glass and pate de verre. Both techniques involve many processes and sometimes the failure rate can be high, ‘Frequently I open the kiln after a firing and the piece hasn’t fired the way I wanted it too. Sometimes glass refuses to be tamed and insists on doing its own thing- I think the challenge is partly the reason I like working with it!”
