Event description


Join us Thursday 15 June 2023 from 4.45PM as we learn more about the experiments, exhibitions and creations our Artists in Residence are working on during their visit to Canberra Glassworks.

This artist talk will be held at Canberra Glassworks and there will be an opportunity to chat with the glass community in the last half hour after the talk. Everyone is welcome and there are absolutely no silly questions. We are all here to learn.


Alexandra Hirst is a South Australian based artist, whose work spans glass blowing, glass casting and installation. Living and working at JamFactory on Kaurna Country (Adelaide), her works are heavily inspired by repetitive patterns and cycles of the natural world.

"I am interested in exploring how colour can affect and trigger an emotional response in the viewer. My focus during this residency will be on colour theory practices and how to apply them to glass by overlapping colours in stuff cups, Swedish overlays, and carving them back. I would also like to experiment with scale and composition creating a collection of forms that interact with light and one another."

Alex's 3D printed cast glass artwork was a finalist in the emerging artist category of the 2020 and 2022 Fuse Glass Prize.
