Blanche Tilden – ripple effect: a 25 year survey
A graduate of the Australian National University, Blanche Tilden has maintained a vibrant practice for over twenty-five years, forging an international reputation in the dual fields of contemporary jewellery and studio glass. This major survey exhibition includes both historical and contemporary works looking at the key themes of mechanical movement, and industrial and architectural uses of glass as well as a series of photographic portraits of collectors wearing their Tilden jewellery or ‘bringing out their Blanche’.
Jamfactory Icon Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder
featuring animations by Jonathan Nix
Born in Canberra and currently based in Adelaide, Tom Moore is one of Australia’s leading glass artists and over the course of his career has carved out a singular voice in Australian glass art making. Working in the ancient craft of blown glass, Moore is a rigorous and technically masterful glass blower whose images and narratives are distinctly contemporary. Moore’s hybrid creatures of part animal, vegetable, mineral and personal such as ‘plantbirds’ and ‘photofishcars’ critique the current human condition and the impact humans have wrought on our environment.
