I studied Industrial Design at the University of South Australia, where I received my degree in 2001. I have been in the design industry ever since graduation. I landed my first design role in the hardware industry. Then soon found my next role in the commercial furniture industry designing office furniture. I loved it.

Combining traditional silversmithing
techniques with a contemporary aesthetic, Alison produces a range of one-off
and limited edition hollowware and jewellery pieces. Her designs are
characterised by simplicity, functionality and playful quirky twist.
Alison also runs Pocket Studio, a small space dedicated to artists working in the field of contemporary jewellery and hollowware. From the fully equipped workshop she runs her own craft practice as well as sharing her knowledge through a program of short courses.
Finishing high school in 2008 I chose to embark on a design pathway. I commenced “Diploma of Arts (Furniture Design)” at Box Hill Tafe. After my first year of the two year course it was discontinued for funding reasons. I then enrolled in RMIT Furniture design course. As I was unable to receive credits for my previous studies at Box Hill and I repeated first year. I successfully completed the 2 year course at RMIT.
During my studies I learnt to combine my knowledge gained from the workshop and theory classes into my projects. What I discovered was that I have an endless drive to designing and constructing furniture while experimenting and exploring at the same time. What I love about furniture is that I can be creative and leave my own fingerprint on a piece, for somebody else to enjoy the piece as much as I did crafting it. Part of the fun is taking risks and pushing the boundaries that today’s furniture has not pushed.
I now have commenced Industrial Design at Monash University. And will continue to develop my knowledge on design in all aspects.
