Tom Moore delivers a floor talk on his current exhibition: Abundant Wonder. Free entry.


JamFactory’s Icon series celebrates the achievements of South Australia’s most influential visual artists working in craft-based media. Tom Moore is one of Australia’s leading glass artists and over the course of his career has carved out a singular voice within Australian glass art making.

Although working in the ancient craft of blown glass, Moore’s images, narratives and settings are distinctly contemporary. His engaging, sophisticated and technically challenging hybridised animal/plant sculptures and the fantastical worlds they inhabit are deeply embedded in the history of glass making and scientific discovery.

Through the taming of the molten liquid material of glass, Moore creates complex diorama worlds within which his fanciful hybridised protagonists act and interact. In his creation of a universe that seems as ominous as it is beautiful, Moore’s artworks are disarmingly playful in their use of narrative to critique the pressing social and environmental concerns of our contemporary epoch.
