Gary Allson designs and makes hand turned wooden bowls and plates. The work is made in his studio in Cornwall using locally sourced sustainable timber: oak, beech, cherry and ash. Following traditional techniques the work focuses on elemental forms with natural surface finishes and a contemporary identity.
MA Graduate of RCA, Gary assisted Anthony Gormley in the making of Angel of the North, as well as working on projects for Raffo Design Associates, Granada TV (Richard and Judy), Roger Taylor (of rock band Queen), BBC2 Windfall Films, comedians Bill Bailey and Sean Lock, and Habitat. Gary is a lecturer at University College Falmouth and continues to develop his digital work from his studio.
