Held in the Fitters Workshop adjacent to Canberra Glassworks, the exhibition of shortlisted works for the inaugural Hindmarsh Prize in 2016 exposed a captive audience to the world-class contemporary glass from around Canberra and the region.
Initiated by arts patron, Mr John Hindmarsh AM and in partnership with Canberra Glassworks, the Hindmarsh Prize has instantly become a much valued, generous and creative contribution to the artists’ local calendar.

Within my practice I am concerned with repeating and assigning forms to express interconnectivity. The components are most often derivative of biological forms, referencing organic systems. Through the process of making, the blown glass elements formed from breath are inherently tempered by heat and gravity.
Here the composition of these mirrored fluid forms casts light and shade. These components express my desire to seek balance and to understand how structures and experiences ‘fit’ together. They bend and lean into the surrounding space. Elegant yet convoluted, the mirrored surface pools and folds the surrounding space.
These blown glass tendrils loosely scribe the word limitless. Ascribing a sense of the expansive nature of human experience. Whilst referencing the temporal and shifting passage of matter in world.
