Along with his academic training Alleghany apprenticed with Japanese potter Takashi Nakazato and was a recipient of the Thomas J. Watson Foundation Fellowship, which allowed him to spend a year doing a field study of traditional potters in rural Nepal. In the interview we talk about the value of being immersed in another culture, as well as keeping studio time a priority in the midst of a busy family and business life.

In 2001 Alleghany opened the Art Stream, a renovated 1967 Air Stream Land Yacht that serves as a nomadic gallery for ceramics. The gallery tours around the U.S. to a variety of venues teaching the public about ceramics through selling art and providing artist demonstrations.
