Stay tuned as the plan is to have them available in the next couple of weeks.Pictures will be postede as soon as they are out of the kiln.


Welcome 2018! 

Already you are beginning to fly away with all those precious hours.

Alison was kept busy right up to a couple of days before Christmas with a pair of fabulous sidelights for a great couple out at Yarramalong..

A couple of weeks off and then right back into it for a pair of leadlights for internal doors for a family at Cooranbong, not to mention repairs on a lampshade, a display cabinet and a leadlight.

There is some reprieve though with Alison scoring another artist redidency at Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery late January/early February. Certainly looking forward to some respite from the heat and humidity we've been experiencing here.

 this is a picture of me beside  "Half Moon Island" which won 3rd prize at the Willowtree Garden Sculpture exhibition. It was great to be able to attend the presentation on saturday 11th November. The show is on till 19th November 2017 at Laggan, NSW. 130 sculptures in a gorgeous garden that is the result of Anna Pye's passion and dedication.

Picture below shows how she has started work on producing some exciting new work for the project.

Wonder what it will be?

Alison is currently reaping the benefits of an Artist Residency at Cradle Mountain Hotel Wilderness Gallery. This area is an endless resource of inspiration, every turn on every path reveals another amazing view/scene/landscape. The rain and mist only add to the experience. The possibilities of the work that is going to result from the inspiration gained during this time is incredible. Guess the studio is up for another hard drive to hold the many photos that are being taken.



​Alison has won 1st Prize at the 2017 Royal Easter Show Art Show in Kilnformed Glass with Portal. 

Then if that wasn't enough she also received a Highly Commended for Knit Picking.


Sunday 23rd April you will find Alison  with some works at Yarramalong Old School for their annual Artists at Work display. 10am until 4pm.

Alison is currently undertaking many varied commisions, but will be happy to speak to you regarding your  projects,


Repairs to broken leadlights, stained glass and lampshades are possible and a simple phone call could well put your mind at ease after that unfortunate accident. They happen to everyone. So many of these pieces have a lot of sentimental value as well as dollar value, so they are worth preserving.
