Top – bowls by JamFactory furniture design associate Samantha Bosward, bottom left – glass containers with timber lids by JamFactory alumni and studio tenants John Quan and Kumiko Nakajima, right – the ‘Kink’ oil bottle designed by Deb Jones and handmade in the JamFactory glass studio.

Incredible work by glass artists at The JamFactory – top pieces by Amanda Dziedzic, faceted shapes by Danielle Rickaby, INCREDIBLE glass bowls on the bottom by someone I unfortunately cannot identify Kristel Britcher!  Thankyou Kate at Object Gallery for the eagle eye identification!

I am not quite sure precisely when this happened, but The JamFactory in Adelaide have a NEW WEBSITE which is brilliant!  (Their old website, I must admit, was rubbish).

The JamFactory is a not-for-profit organisation supported by the South Australian Government, and has long been respected for nurturing and promoting Australian design and craftsmanship.  They offer fantastic studios and a versatile gallery space for ceramicists, glass artists, furniture designers, metal workers and jewellers to create, exhibit and sell their work.   For the serious crafter, The JamFactory also offers a great variety of craft courses – from workshops and short courses to a 2 year associate program, which some of Australia’s most respected craftspeople have undertaken.

With such an impressive history, it’s fantastic to see The JamFactory improving their online presence – they now have a website which really showcases the incredible work they do!  It is now SO MUCH EASIER to navigate and admire the many gorgeous things created by JamFactory associates and tenants!

I can’t believe I am telling you this because it is actually a goldmine for blog research, and now whenever I blog about a ceramicist or glass artist from Adelaide you will totally know where I found them :)

Jewellery by Peta Kruger (shes having an exhibition at the JamFactory gallery later this month!)

    Would love to purchase Amanda Dziedzic’s Yumemiru range. Most of the links on her blog stating where her products are available don’t currently stock her items. And her Etsy store is empty! Have emailed Jam Factory in the hope they’ll post to NZ. They are just beautiful.

    Kristel Britcher’s glass wear can be purchased at Hut 13 ( 13 Morey st, Armadale ) which was on the Design Files a couple of months ago! Check it out…..

    The JamFactory Glass Studio currently has a exhibition on at the Canberra Glassworks where you can purchase the beautiful oil bottles, if they haven’t sold out yet, and Danielle Rickaby’s Turf Paperweights. The show is called Ten Good Stories and features the work and stories of glass artists that use the facility. In the Canberra Glassworks retail shop you can also purchase many items made by the assiocates at the JamFactory. Email them for more info.

    How delightful that the Jam Factory has put some dollars into developing an improved online presence for the artists they represent. There’s nothing worse than a terrible website – we are so influenced by what we see on the web, and this will no doubt open the work to an international audience. Great work.

    Adelaide! About time the JamFactory got a bit of street cred :) They always have such lovely stuff in there. Another website that needs a facelift is http://www.urbancow.com.au/ – they have great finds too, but goes to show how easy it is to lose sales with sub-par product shots and a lousy website.
