Ceramic Artist Allison Moore Peel
Seattle, Washington - USA
Allison sells her art directly to customers hand to hand, at Seattle's Pike Place Market, in the North Arcade craft day stalls. The Market overlooks the
waterfront, centrally located in downtown Seattle. Sales tables typically chosen by Allison in the market are on or near the Desimone Bridge. Please find the entrance at the base of Stewart St. at Pike Place. Come have a look at Puget Sound, the ferries and ferris wheel from the new viewing deck and Pavilion area. It's going to be a great summer at Pike Place Market!
Allison's ceramic art is created using a combination of methods. It is hand-built, thrown, press-molded, stamped, and slip cast, and methods are often used in combination to create unique, uplifting, collectable and affordable art.

Here at Dark Duck Clay Shop art is created in the company of Black Cayuga and Welsh Harlequin ducks. 2018 saw a focused, extensive effort to expand and upgrade work areas into an outdoor studio. This home and workshop is a 25 min. drive south east of downtown Seattle. We use knowledge of permaculture and alternative construction as we develop our studio and gardens. The outdoor workshop areas have been erected to facilitate the creation of cement, hypertufa, natural plaster and cob projects and also, for group workshops (in addition to the ongoing creation of Allison's ceramic art.) 2019 is bursting with potential. We are anticipating the completion of Project Decadome this summer. It is a 14 foot diameter geodesic dome that will be used as a library and meditation space. We've done tests with natural plasters and pumice-crete, and are closing in on a draping system to make a hard shell covering for the dome. And in March of this year we completed the floor, with salvaged tongue and groove wood knotty pine planks laid in a beautiful pentagon! It' an experimental shelter for the exploration of the use of various earthen and cementitious sculptural media, in particular blends that are low intensity, leave a light ecological footprint, and adhere to design aesthetics based on recyclable and reusable construction materials. Despite being made partially out of cement, this dome is designed for the ability to deconstruct if it ever needs to be moved. Art, home, and workshop reflect and express the values rooted in walking the Peaceful Path and honoring the ethics of Sustainable Growth. Ocean life, forest creatures and the unique textures and forms of living things are favorite subjects. Cosmic and ancient symbols, the preservation of life and biodiversity, Earth our Mother, Shambhala Buddhism, and multicultural community are the contemplative values and teachings which inspire us forward. Project Decadome is an evolving experimental sculpted shelter to be researched and built hands-on and from the ground-up while we all gain knowledge of sacred geometry inherent in its 10 cornered shape .
