Alison Milner is an independent designer with over twenty years of experience.
She trained in furniture design at the Royal College of Art but since then her work has developed and broadened and now includes illustration, products, furniture, exhibitions and books.
As a designer Alison Milner specialises in designing simple elegant products with graphic and photographic decoration. She is inventive and sensitive with a strong eye for detail and up to date vision of fashion and taste trends. Alison Milner understands many materials and processes. She has worked with ceramic, glass, enamelware, formica, plywood, bendywood, embossed recycled leather and jacquard weaving. She manages to combine industrial and handmade processes in a unique and seamless way.
At Zimmmer Stewart Gallery we are pleased to show the ceramic work which Alison Milner produces in collaboration with Christiane Kersten. Alison Milner and Christiane Kersten have been working together on this range of printed ceramics since June 2005. Christiane Kersten makes the elegant slipware (and more recently hand thrown ware) and Alison designs the decal decoration.
