Alison Gautrey’s almost paper-like, porcelain vessels in subtle shades of white are luminously translucent. These weightless bowls capture the feeling of movement within the simplicity of form.
Alison has recently been experimenting with combining bone china and porcelain together in the same piece, exploiting the inevitable distortions that occur. A splash of white or a fingerprint indent, all render each vessel unique. In these sculptural pieces, Alison successfully combines certain randomness in the porcelain process with an intuitive vision through her design background paired with her knowledge of material.
Alison obtained a BA Honours in 3 Dimensional Design – Ceramics and Glass at Buckingham College of Higher Education.
