Gregory Alliss is an artist working in glass and engineer. He predominantly works with kiln casting and coldworking techniques working with optical glass and recycled glass.
He is currently researching a PhD at the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). Having previously gained an MFA in Glass also at the ECA. His PhD is practice based looking aspects sustainability in the context of glass art studio practice.
His recent artistic practice has been heavily focused on using waste recycled glass from Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs). The glass tubes were the key component of old-style televisions. His current work has expanded on this to investigate at the production of glass art made from non-traditional raw materials and glass art made from waste glass that is not traditionally used by glass artists.
