Don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit the private studios of some of Adelaide’s most successful artists and hear how they’ve established sustainable careers. Guildhouse’s series of talks in the artist’s studio invites you to learn from well-regarded creative professionals as they describe their career development – where they started, what they’ve done to get where they are and the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
Tom Moore uses traditional and innovative glass techniques to breathe life into his eccentric hybrid specimens. Though Tom’s inventive creatures are mostly friendly, he addresses darker issues such as nature vs. industry in his dreamscape dioramas. For the last 14 years Tom has been the production manager at the JamFactory Craft and Design Center in Adelaide, where he makes varied commissioned items, and trains graduates in glass production and exhibition work. Tom exhibits his glass in elaborate mixed media environments and was featured in a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. In 2013 Tom’s work won both prestigious national prizes for glass: the Tom Malone Prize and The Ranamok glass prize. Tom’s work is represented in many notable collections.
