 Jessica Loughlin’s work is characterized by a reductive sensibility and restricted use of colour. Fusing sheets of opaque and translucent glass together in flat panels and geometric free standing boxes she alludes to shadow, reflection and refraction. One of Australia’ s most internationally recognised kiln forming artists, her work is represented in permanent museum collections around the world including the Corning Museum of Glass, the National Gallery of Australia, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Loughlin has been awarded the prestigious Australian glass awards, the Ranamok Prize in 1997 and the Tom Malone Prize in 2004 and 2007. She is regularly sought to teach overseas. This workshop run by UniSA is a rare opportunity to attend a workshop with Loughlin in Australia.

Light is the material of sight and central to Loughlin’s work in understanding how we see, and therefore how we perceive place. In line with the 2015 conference theme, this workshop will use the theme of light as a starting point to complete two projects. In the first project students will learn how to make a hollow box form requiring to students to master exacting fusing techniques, understand complicated firings and learn various cold-working techniques. In the second project students will explore and expand ideas around the theme of light. Time will then be spent workshopping the transition from idea to object through specific design methods including discussion and 3D drawing, before completing small individual explorations in glass.

Numbers are strictly limited. Don’t miss this one off opportunity to work with one of Australia’s most respected kiln forming artists.
