About Alison West

WPA

I am inspired by work decorated by flame and fire and influenced by simple, elegant and feminine shapes. I produce saggar fired unglazed forms as well as reduction fired glazed work. The saggar is a container in which pots are buried in combustible and volatile materials placed in a gas kiln. The results are unpredictable and exciting, created by careful and detailed preparation of the pot, mix of combustibles and firing process. I work in the knowledge that the results will never be repeated. I enjoy the risk and varying emotional responses derived from the process and find the controlled atmosphere that produces uncontrolled results reflects life itself and allows me to be adventurous
