Alison Owen is an artist whose practice is primarily site-specific and ephemeral, hinged to a specific space and time and operating outside of a commercial system. Her ceramics can go out into the world as objects made for daily use. Her interests are in the ways that these practices coexist, and how they support and undermine each other. She makes vessels out of ceramic and fabric, and creates installations that operate as a tableau or still life.
Alison holds her BA from Evergreen State College and was awarded her MFA at Claremont Graduate University.
