The banana slug fairy is a surprising discovery in the early morning. She seems to have migrated to Ally's garden overnight. Now she is part of the big family. I can imagine myself as a banana slug fairy, patient and vibrant.  This piece is made of 
of stoneware clay, fired to cone 1.  I used a press mold and then sculpted details by hand. Airbrushing and hand-painting techniques were both applied to this sculpture.  It is finished with three layers of wax polishing.

Getting to Know Alison

Alison’s ceramic wall sculptures exist within a detailed fantasy narrative devised by the artist. Each creature belongs to a world of fairies who live in “Ally’s garden.” The characters have distinct personalities, complex relationships, and specific qualities that make each fairy unique. “My art is about love and relationships,” says Alison. “I imagined a fairy land that is all about love, and each character I have created is inspired by real people.” Alison’s fantasy world comes to life in the sculpture studio space that she founded with her husband in the San Francisco Bay Area.
