Alison Lowry graduated in 2009 with a first class honours degree from the University of Ulster. With a background predominately in stitch, it was during her final year that she started to work with glass and has never looked back since! Her unique sculptures and installations combine Irelands textile heritage with more traditional glass fusing techniques.
The process of making is intrinsic to my practice and I am fascinated by the interface created when glass is used in conjunction with other processes and techniques, for example photography, printmaking and textiles. The endless sculptural possibilities that glass offers, and the diverse range of contradictions inherent within the material fascinate me.
