Toyama International Glass Exhibition, Toyama Glass Art Museum, Japan

I’m thrilled to be selected into this international Triennial of contemporary art made from glass from 52 countries across the world. This is the second iteration of this prestigious exhibition. It hopes to bring together the latest achievements in glass art and showcase a range of perspectives from around the world. Toyama is known as a city of glass, housing the Toyama Glass art museum and the Toyama Institute of Glass. Can’t wait to visit one of these days!

The Study, a group exhibition at Sabbia Gallery, Sydney

17 March – 10 April 2021

A time-honoured device used by artists to plan for larger works, a study is a smaller work that allows the artists to explore the elements of the piece so that they are able to finesse the work at the planning stage. As one of Sabbia’s artists, I was invited to create or release smaller-scale study pieces for this exhibition. I made two intimate “collections” of work for this delightful exhibition.

FUSE Glass Prize, Australian Design Centre, Sydney.

October 2020

In its third iteration, I am delighted to be a finalist in JamFactory’s FUSE Glass Prize for Australian and New Zealand glass. It’s an exciting new prize in the arts landscape, and I was very honoured to be the inaugural winner in 2016.

This year the finalist’s exhibition not only showed in Adelaide and Seppeltsfield but has travelled to Sydney for an exhibition at the Australian Design Centre. It’s great to bring it to a bigger audience.

Deep Skin, solo exhibition at Sabbia Gallery, Sydney

September 2020

Galleries, as well as artists, have been really challenged this year to make and present work and to connect with audiences. I was so pleased to be able to create this exhibition, work with the great team at Sabbia Gallery and share it with people both online and physically in the gallery.

Maintaining my connection to the natural world seems as important as ever but perhaps with a new kind of urgency attached. I am moved and inspired by forces in nature that are quiet and gentle, powerful and profound.
