WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass in a series of features highlighting their past resident artists. This piece profiles artisan Alison Lowry.
Irish artist Alison Lowry’s works do not shy away from traumatic situations and memories. From Vessels (of Remembrance), her commentary on a horrific child abuse story in the recent past, to The Others (95% Series), her reference to the 95% of rape victims who will never report their crimes, Lowry uses viewers’ interactions with their personal traumas to explore psychological phenomenon.
Lowry is formally trained in textiles, and began working with fused glass in 2008. In addition to her studio work, she teaches pâte de verre and screen printing on glass. Lowry’s work has been exhibited in shows internationally, including the upcoming Body Talk at Ebeltoft Glass Museum, Denmark and OMG at the Red Cone Glass Centre, Stourbridge in 2013. In 2009, she was awarded the Glass Society of Ireland’s Award.
