Alison Vincent glass

My remote wild nature encounters inspire my hand-created glass art.
I love being in extreme wildernesses - sailing or diving, oceans and ocean life, mountains and ice.

These big expanses give a sense of adventure and exhilaration. Being there is a real privilege. Vast, rugged landscapes make me feel very small but connected with this world. I’m concerned about their fragile future and want to raise awareness so others care and protect them too.

Recreating my wilderness experiences in glass combines two of my passions. Glassblowing is the hardest thing I have ever done! It’s challenging, expensive, addictive and satisfying and I use unexpected techniques. My making process is dramatic and adds to my enjoyment.
