An American by birth, Alice came first to Britain on a Fulbright Scholarship in 1961. She married the poet and academic Ronald GASKELL, and following his retirement from Bristol University, the couple and their two children moved to Cape Cornwall. Here Alice established her own pottery, and over a couple of decades produced simple graceful vases and bowls in porcelain with muted soft glazes in her characteristic maroon and green colourings.
Her pottery sold very well in gift shops (NAG) and in arts and crafts venues of all sorts. She also exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions, and was one of the first to present a solo show of work at the newly opened Jamieson Library series at Newmill, Penzance (1986-98).
