Alison Croney Moses finds the moment in time, space, and community where there is balance, and in that balance, we find the critical moment of transformation — of wood, of a person, of an organization, of the field of craft, and ultimately, of a society.

Croney Moses has worked over the past fifteen years in alternative education settings to build out education programs that center the communities they work with while fulfilling the missions of the institutions. Her work is in the collections at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and elsewhere and has been featured in American Craft Magazine. She is currently associate director at the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts, where she founded its Teen Bridge and Artist in Residence programs to help cultivate the current and next generations of artists and leaders in art and craft.

Croney Moses holds an MA in sustainable business and communities from Goddard College and a BFA in furniture design from the Rhode Island School of Design.
