This collaborative project explores new materials and forms, with artists who normally paint on canvas transferring their skills to glass for the first time. The artists at Ninuku Arts, in Kalka in the far northwest of South Australia, have painted their characteristically bold and colourful designs onto glass ‘starter bubbles’, which have then been blown into larger forms by JamFactory glass artists. The resulting works present ancestral stories in a striking new medium.

Artists: Jayanna Andy, Roxanne Carroll, Ruth Fatt, Marceena Jack, Vennita Lionel, Nicole Rupert, Anne Thompson, Marissa Thompson, and Rita Watson (other artists TBC David Miller, Carol Young and Katrina Connolley.

Presented as part of Tarnanthi.
