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.
