A Bit About The Artist...
Alison is a mosaic artist based in Cornwall. Working from her home studio, she produces unique and highly collectible artwork that has a distinctive personal style. Alison has previously exhibited in a gallery in Florence, Italy and her artwork is in private collections worldwide. She has recently installed two large scale public commissions at a local school and college.
"I create unique artwork using recycled vintage bone china, broken and discarded pottery, glass, ceramic tile and porcelain ornaments. I also make mixed media artwork incorporating Frozen Charlotte Dolls, porcelain skulls and bullet casings to name a few! As well as wall art, I also mosaic 3D sculptures and mannequins. I recycle as much as possible and I'm often commissioned to incorporate a cherished piece of china that has chipped or broken into a wonderful bespoke keepsake. With this medium the possibilities are limitless.
Alison has recently took part in a Wild in Art event 'Worcester Stands Tall' Her mosaic giraffe sculpture titled 'Girafficorn' raised £15,000 at auction for St Richard's Hospice. There were 30 8ft sculptures on the Wild in Art trail and collectively they raised an incredible £210,400. More info about this project can be found on social media.
Alison has completed interior commissions such as kitchen and bathroom splashbacks as well as fire surrounds and bespoke furniture.
Commission work is undertaken from time to time. Contact can be made via this website for availability and to discuss requirements.
