JamFactory Icon 2014 Nick Mount: The Fabric of Work
11 July - 12 September
Nick Mount is one of Australia’s most accomplished and celebrated studio glass artists. He has been at the forefront of innovation and achievement since the early 1970s.
The pieces presented in this exhibition describe the dominant themes and aesthetic of his work over the last few years. Some of the pieces are new, while a few have been included for their particular significance in the telling of the story. The Scent Bottles, Plumb Bobs, Bubbles and Still Life compositions all describe an evolution in his work that weave the yarn into a simple fabric that supports belief in the importance of family, community and hand work. Nick Mount's new work is based on these ideas and very clearly demonstrates the input and influence of the community of the Glass Studio at JamFactory.
This exhibition is part of the Living Treasure: Masters of Australiasn Craft series, an iniative of Object: Australian Design Centre. Presented as part od the 2014 SALA Festival, this touring exhibition has only been made possible through a major funding program from Arts SA and support from Artwork Transport Pty Ltd and JamFactory.
11 July - 12 September
There is no artifice or trickery in the collection of artworks displayed in White Heat – the raw essence of the material is celebrated by each artist’s unique interpretation of ‘ceramic wearables’. Porcelain hollow ware, hand tinted beads, copper crocheted pendants and hand etched illustration - each artist’s approach to ceramic jewellery is diverse: their sensibility, combination of materials and array of techniques will surprise and delight.
