Alison Lowry is a glass artist, based in Northern Ireland. Over the past year she has been working on a technique that allows her to recreate clothing in textile thin glass. She will present a new installation at the Saatchi gallery during Collect Open in 2018 examining the legacy of the Magdalene Laundaries.
Collect Open offers a unique opportunity for individual makers and collectives to exhibit alongside international galleries showing at Collect. It has been a rich addition to the fair since 2011 and encourages artists to show work which challenges traditional perceptions of craft and design
