Gary Allson designs and makes hand turned wooden bowls and plates inspired by observations and insights into daily living. His work is made in his studio in Cornwall using locally sourced sustainable timber: oak, beech, cherry and ash. Following traditional techniques and natural surface finishes, the work is intentionally kept simple so that the emphasis is on the idea.
MA Graduate of RCA, Gary assisted Anthony Gormley in the making of Angel of the North. Gary is a visiting lecturer at University College Falmouth and continues to develop his digital work from his studio. His work has been exhibited throughout the UK and Europe.
He has worked freelance for a number of design consultancies and is a visiting lecturer at Falmouth University.
