Alison Cooke

Alison Cooke is a ceramic artist. She works site responsively with clay dug from interventions such as mining, scientific research or construction. Her work revolves around the layers of history below a location, with a particular focus on hidden or underground networks where histories might relate to, and impact on our lives today and in the future.

Alison’s work is project based and often includes public engagement and involvement of other artists. She is co-founder of ceramics collective the Associated Clay Workers Union.
