JamFactory Ceramics Studio

The Ceramics studio at JamFactory is a bustling hive of activity. The team of Associates (first years, Sophia Phillips, Hilary Jones, Guy Ringwood and Wayne Mcara, and second years, James Edwards and Maria Chatzinikolaki) work together on the production of Studio products and Commissions while also developing their own designs for sale in JamFactory outlets and Galleries around Australia.  Recent commissions include 1200 ‘Magic Bowls’ for Gay Bilson and the Adelaide Film Festival event on Willunga Beach.

The Associate program is designed to assist in the professional development of a small, selected group of committed ceramicists and encourages them to learn new techniques and approaches that enable them to enter their field at an advanced level. A number of ceramic artists from the local community, along with tenants from within the building, regularly use the kilns and equipment in the studio and assist in the building of a vibrant and stimulating environment.
