Figures

Alison produces indoor and outdoor figurative sculptures based on her life drawings. Each design is incorporated into a Plaster of Paris slab as carved lines. To make each piece, a rolled out clay slab is pressed onto the Plaster of Paris to reveal the design as raised lines on the clay. Each sculpture is constructed out of several layers of clay slabs, each layer representing different parts of the final figurative design. When the clay is at the right state the back and front are fixed together to create the final three-dimensional form.

Pieces are made from a variety of stoneware clays depending on scale, form and firing technique. Each piece is hollow, hand built and unique.
