Trulsson likens her investigations into form, material and surface in ceramics to the limitless discoveries in the intricacies of objects and details of the landscape. The apparent simplicity of her work is underpinned by the refinement and precise detailing in their making.

Colour: Speaking In Plumes
12 December - 24 January
Colour: Speaking In Plumes is a collection of new jewellery pieces centred around the colour combinations different species of birds display in their feathers. Having researched many species of colourful birds, as well as having photographed hundreds of taxidermied specimens at the South Australian Museum Science Centre’s Ornithology collection, Potter whittled her collection down to around 70 species to focus the exhibition on. Each of these pieces embodies a specific species of bird, taking the colours from their feathers and reinterpreting these within the jewellery works.
One + 3
22 November - 15 February
Andrew Bartlett with Christine Cholewa, Deb Jones and Kate Sutherland.
One + 3 is the inaugural exhibition in a series at JamFactory’s Seppeltsfield Gallery. Focused on alumni of our Associate program and creative team, the premise of the exhibition is that JamFactory selects one alumni who in turn selects 3 other alumni whose work they are intrigued by or whose practice inspires them.
Working together to produce an exhibition the outcomes for each iteration of this exhibition will vary depending on the group of artists. From thematic exhibition, to artists working collaboratively on new pieces this exhibition will be a great compliment to our programming at a time when we celebrate our new emerging talents in the annual exhibition Generate.
For 2014 furniture alumnus Andrew Bartlett selected glass alumni Christine Cholewa and Deb Jones and metal design alumnus Kate Sutherland to produce works exploring timber, glass, concrete and metal.
