Sculpture and 2D works using a variety of materials: glass, wood and metal.
I work in steel and create unique sculptures of animals and abstract pieces. Inspiration is drawn from nature, and a fascination for movement, fluidity, lightness and texture. Humour also plays an important part in the creation process, which hopefully is revealed in my work. For me, metal has still an element of surprise and adaptability is crucial. Scale can vary from small items to life-size artwork.

Individual, intricate and vibrant handcrafted bead

Alison McConachie studied glass at Edinburgh College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. She has been a lecturer on the Glass and Architectural Glass course at Edinburgh College of Art since 1979.
My work aspires to elevate value in materials and techniques. Focus for work is driven between pattern and material explorations. I believe there are no boundaries in jewellery, no more the 'must haves' of precious metals and jewels.
