Alison Jackson is a Canberra based gold and silversmith. Alison completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) in Gold and Silversmithing at the Australian National University incorporating a six month exchange at University of Applied Sciences Trier, Idar-Oberstein, Germany.
Alison's practice spans across both jewellery and tableware. Fusing aesthetics and functionality, Alison’s work seeks to incorporate curious elements with distinct character. Through form the user is invited to interact with the objects, seeking to explore and uncover an unexpected playfulness.
Alison has exhibited throughout Australia and Germany and has won a number of awards. Most recently in 2015, Alison was the recipient of an Australia Council New Work Grant and awarded the Canberra Critics’ Circle Award for her solo exhibition at Craft ACT, Table Tools.
Alongside her own work, Alison shares her technical knowledge through a program of short courses offered in her fully equipped workshop.
