Alison Coaten

Alison Coaten’s figures bring together bodies of clay, from coarse cranks used for their strength and texture, through to smooth earthenware and slips for detail and soft flesh. Some areas are clothed with glaze whilst others remain in their naked visceral state, exposing earthy tones and the marks of their making.

The imagery Alison uses is largely drawn from religious iconography and along with an innate love of nature, it honours the natural world, our commonality and interconnection.
