Recluse Designs

Recluse Designs was founded by Alison Edwards and is an empire she is quietly building from her idyllic beachside studio Wagait across Darwin’s beautiful harbour.  – just a short ferry ride away.
Alison has been creating since she was a youngster and has experimented with just about every genre of craft and art there is before settling on mosaics as her true creative love. Her first foray into mosaics was in transforming a battered old desk into a  beautiful jewelled creation. And that is where the true magic of her creations comes – transforming what is perhaps old and otherwise unattractive into a beautiful work of art. She can transform just about any piece of weathered furniture into a rich colourful masterpiece .
Her latest creations have transformed the spoils of beach combing treasure into colourful masterpieces. Sourcing driftwood and other beach items she uses glass and ceramic to transform them into stunning sculptures.

All her pieces are hand made in her picturesque  Wagait Beach studio.  She delights in custom orders, large and small. Examples of her work include garden pavers, indoor and outdoor furniture and art ranging from  small pieces to murals,  and well, just about any flat surface you can imagine.

Alison finds inspiration for her art  from just about anywhere – shadows on a wall, the unusual shapes of tropical flora, waves on the ocean and of course the spectacular natural landscape of our own Territory provides an endless source of material upon which to draw.

In more than thirty years of creating, Alison has won numerous awards for her art  and in 2017 will be exhibiting at an exclusive gallery in New York.  But Territorians can find her work adorning the walls at darwin’s hippest, newest eatery-  Qbar and Gallery One hair salon. You can also find her all this season at Territory Made Markets right up until September. Acquire a unique Recluse Designs piece for your place. It will love you for it.
