Glassware from the new JamFactory product range – top –  JAMJAR Storage Jar (designed by Deb Jones, Tom Mirams and Brian Parkes), left - STRETCH Jug with anodised aluminium stirrer, right – KINK vinegar bottle (designed by Deb Jones).  All designed and handcrafted in house at the JamFactory.

As most of you know, I am a big fan of the JamFactory in Adelaide, ever since spending a little time there last year.  This amazing creative hub, based in Adelaide’s CBD, really is such a truly unique facility, supporting and promoting the very best in Australian design and craftsmanship through its workshops, associate program, studios, galleries and retail shops.  JamFactory is for serious craft.  The quality of product that comes out of here is truly outstanding.

SO it’s with great excitement that The JamFactory team launch their much anticipated production range this month!  The idea of launching a self branded product range has been cooking for some time at JamFactory HQ.  With some of the very best creative minds at work here, and the most incredible studio resources in the country at their disposal, it’s an inevitable development – exposing JamFactory creative output to a national audience, and encouraging associates to design with small scale manufacturing and retail pricepoint in mind.

After initial experimentation with one-off products, a family of ten beautifully designed, handcrafted JamFactory products were launched at Design : Made : Trade in Melbourne last week.

The range includes the super popular KINK oil bottle (launched last year), which has been joined by a few stylish friends to create a cohesive but very varied little collection of functional products for the home – the sweet KINK Vinegar Bottle (a perfect partner for the taller oil bottle), STRETCH Jug with elegant anodised aluminium swizzle stick, striking conical JAMJAR and AIRCRAFT Brooch and Lamp are pictured here.  The range also includes timber bread boards, salad servers and ceramic nesting bowls – check out the JamFactory website for image of the full range!

What really stands out about this debut product range is a sense of time spent in development.  JamFactory have pooled their most creative minds and impressive resources over the past 18 months, taking the time to hone each design and really do things properly!  It shows. These objects are so elegant in their execution and thoughtfully produced, perfectly highlighting the craft methods used in their production.

All JamFactory products are designed in-house by creative staff or through collaboration with independent designers. Each piece is then handcrafted by JamFactory staff and associates within one or more of the four studios on site at the JamFactory – Glass, Metal, Ceramics and/or Furniture.

The JamFactory product range is available from JamFactory’s Morphett Street retail shop in Adelaide, and JamFactory’s online shop – do pop by for a browse!  TDF readers can also take advantage of a special offer of free shipping on all online purchases until 6th August 2012, using the discount code TDF2012 at the checkout.

    Love the huge range of gorgeous, useful and beautifully-made goods coming out of the Jam Factory. I bought a few pieces years ago that I’ll keep forever. The online store is great, but this post makes me want to make another visit to Adelaide to see the real thing.

    Loved the dispensers. It may sound exaggerating if I say I’ve been looking for a 750 ml and 1 l glass oil dispenser here in Bangalore, India for over two months. But, still no luck! How is wish we had such fancy products here.

    I have been obsessed with the Stretch Jug and Jamjar since seeing them at Design, Made, Trade in Melbourne recently. They look even better in real life and the range of colours available is awesome too. Genuine quality and great designs, love, love, love.
