[Now extended to 31st August – view the video here]

A solo exhibition of Alison Kinnaird MBE‘s work, showcasing a wide range of engraved glass art, from small intimate pieces to larger architectural projects, combining the ancient technique of wheel engraving with the cutting edge technology of LED lighting, to introduce light and colour to the images. It will be an ‘open studio’ show, where visitors can also see Alison working on the glass.

Creative Scotland awarded Alison a grant this year, to create large panels of engraved glass depicting striking contemporary subjects, using her recently-developed unique, innovative technique, and these panels will be on display for the first time in this show.

Alison’s home and workplace is Shillinghill Studios – a converted church dating from 1832, in the historic village of Temple, also the base of Temple Records, founded by Alison’s husband – musician and producer Robin Morton – specialising in Scottish and Irish music. The conversion, completed 40 years ago, has featured in the book The Times Innovative Interiors.

Temple Village was the headquarters of the Knights Templar in Scotland in the 14th century, making it a historic setting for enjoying the exhibition in a spectacular building and discovering the ancient ruined church opposite.
