Fairy Guardian Richard is one of the few male character in Ally's fairy garden. He is a loving and strong protector. He lives with Ally and keep her fairy friends away from danger. This sculpture is sculpted from life--my lovely husband Richard was the model. This piece is made of of stoneware clay, fired to cone 05.  I used a press mold and then sculpted details by hand. It is hand-painted with acrylic.  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.
