Kent based potter Alison Alldis is never happier than when in her garden shed creating a
varied array of individual pottery pieces. Her love affair with clay began over 20 years ago
when her children were small and she would escape for one evening a week to a hand building
class and the rest is history, as they say.
Alison’s inspiration is literally everywhere but she does have, what she calls ‘a funny eye’ and
always makes what she likes and doesn’t mind adding a twist of wonk to every pot. She’s
always delighted when someone ‘gets’ her work and double chuffed when they buy it. Alison
only makes a small number of pieces and each is a true one-off, her work is only offered for
sale in a few of the finest local outlets and in normal times at a yearly open studio.
