Temple Records artist Alison Kinnaird has a parallel career as an artist working in glass, with an international reputation. Using the ancient technique of wheel-engraving, often combining it with cutting-edge technology such as LED lighting, her work ranges from small intimate pieces to architectural scale projects and is in many public and private collections, including the V&A Museum, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and the Corning Museum of Glass NY.

'Hers is a fusing with the physical elements of glass of metaphysical elements of imagery and perceptions, inner worlds and 'otherworlds', symbolism, inherited belief and lost experience, time and timelessness'
Hugh Cheape, Royal Museums of Scotland

This solo exhibition will take place in the conservation village of Temple, 12 miles south of Edinburgh, in the converted church which has been Alison's home and studio for many years, the building where Temple Records are also based. The ruined church close to the studio was the headquarters of the Knights Templar in Scotland in the 14th century, and as well as enjoying the open studio exhibition in a spectacular building, visitors can discover this historic venue.
