Glass Artist Alison Kinnaird is one of the world’s leading copper wheel engravers, a process which has remained mainly unchanged since Roman times.
Working from her home studio space in a converted Victorian Gothic church, Alison takes pleasure in making this ancient technique relevant to life today. She is a maker who brings glass engraving into a contemporary age to create large scale architectural installations as well as smaller, intimate pieces.
Alison’s work is internationally renowned and she was awarded an MBE in 1997 in recognition of her contributions to art and music. Her work has gained her international success and is housed in significant international collections such as the Victoria and Albert in London.
She has taken on many prestigious commissions including a window for the Scottish Portrait Gallery, which was opened in July 2012 by HM Queen Elizabeth II and most recently two windows for Dornoch cathedral in the Scottish Highlands.
