Emma Young is South Australian born & bred, often making local references in her glass artwork. Working out of the JamFactory glass studio, Emma enjoys exploring different techniques with each new developing work. Themes often involve nostalgia, pride in local icons, and personal childhood memories.
“With my primarily utilitarian glass work, I aim to convey a sense of familiarity and innocence to achieve connection with my audience. Translating my pride and affection for experiences throughout my upbringing in Adelaide, I hope to share treasured memories and expose my vulnerability to the viewer. I enjoy using vivid colours in forms that serve both function and aesthetic.”
