Grateful Giveaway 3

Question: I’ve picked a number between 1 and 100, guess it correctly to win, and then I’ll tell you why I’ve picked that number.

Answer: 41.  The Jam Factory has been operating for 41 years now!

The Jam Factory is an iconic art destination in Adelaide.  It opened in 1973 in a different location, but now you can find it in Morphett Street in the city.  They also have a retail outlet in Rundle Plaza in the Mall.

In 2009 I entered my SALA exhibition into the Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design Awards.  The exhibition was “Anti-Depression Glass” and explored the use of recycled glass to make beads, and jewellery.

I was shortlisted as a finalist, and was so ridiculously nervous on the night of the award ceremony, wondering if I had possibly won the award!  Well, I didn’t win the award, but I did win a meeting with the retail manager who invited me to stock my work in their retail outlet!

I am so very grateful to the Jam Factory for recognising something in my work, and for working with me to ensure my work is of the highest standards for the shop.
