We got to know Alison Palmer first in Kent, where she teaches and sells amazing pottery.
Then we followed her to Mexico, where she shifts artistic gears. In Yucatán, she makes papier-maché masks that draw inspiration from Mayan culture.
Part of the change is chalked up to practicality. In Yucatán, she can get paper more readily than clay. But there are other choices. Her color palette shifts from neutrals to vibrant reds, blues and greens.
Stay tuned for photos and an interview with Christina Hennessy.
