Gregory Alliss

Artist and engineer, Gregory Alliss, specialises in kiln casting and cold working techniques using optical and recycled glass. Gregory gained an MFA in Glass at the Edinburgh College of Art in 2019 and is currently researching a practice-based PhD in glass. The motivation for his current research is to provide additional source materials to assist glass artists in developing sustainable practices

His recent practice is heavily focused on using recycled glass from Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) – the key component of old-style televisions. Beyond the immaculate façade of his intriguing objects lies mesmerising cloud formations. These patterns represent the flow of molten glass and the resulting information that spools across the optical boundary of the object. Gregory’s work draws you in; a gateway to the inner space where the subtle nuances of the material can be examined. He has since expanded his investigation to explore the production of glass art made from non-traditional raw materials
