Alison Palmer bio

Alison Palmer was born and raised in New York. After graduating high school she attended Kansas City Art Institute as well as the California College of Arts and Crafts where she received her BFA in ceramics.

Alison then returned to New York where she implemented a “treatment through crafts” program at Four Winds Psychiatric Hospital in Katonah. While teaching at Four Winds, Alison began her own studio at a converted old schoolhouse in Croton Falls, New York. She met and married musician Steve Katz (Blood, Sweat & Tears, Blues Project). Together they created a company called Ashes to Ashes which produced funerary urns for animals. The urns were to be designed and handmade by Alison while Steve did the sales and marketing. The pressures of dealing with grieving clients, however, were too much for the couple and so they concentrated solely on Alison’s handcrafted ideas.

By 1986, Alison was exhibiting her work at a few of the finer craft galleries in New York City and elsewhere. The recognition her work received at the major wholesale shows was overwhelming and Alison and Steve had to cope with the challenge of learning the “business” of crafts while at the same time exploring new areas of Alison’s creativity. Today, Alison Palmer can boast representation by numerous galleries, museum shops, and catalogs in America and abroad.

Alison and Steve live in Kent, Connecticut with their studio, kilns, two dogs, their African Grey Parrots, Tutu & KooKoo, and the remains of their beloved Guinea Pig, Sid.
