• Please bring a cushion and a blanket/covering to ensure your comfort.

About the artist:
Jessica Loughlin - A studio glass artist for over twenty-five years, Jessica Loughlin creates ethereal kiln formed glass works that explore her fascination with the beauty of emptiness and her extensive research into light and space. Known for her understated aesthetic, Loughlin takes her artistic cues from the vast, flat landscapes and salt lakes of South Australia and is particularly drawn to the inherent quietness and stillness of the land. Loughlin’s thoughtful and instinctual approach to kiln formed glass, together with her extraordinary technical skills with the medium, has culminated in the artist being widely celebrated for her innovation both nationally and internationally.

Imbued with a sense of wonder and curiosity, her artistic practice centres on care, collaboration and connection of and with people, place and planet. Hilary enjoys playing cello in live and recorded performance, and for over 20 years Hilary was cellist with and Artistic Director of Zephyr Quartet - ‘Arguably Australia’s most lateral thinking and inventive ensemble’ (Music Australia) – an award-winning, bold and adventurous string quartet, delighting in the exploration of diverse music and forging dynamic collaborations.
