Jessica Loughlin

Fascinated with the beauty of emptiness, Jessica Loughlin’s ethereal kiln formed glass works mirror her quiet and understated yet visually demanding practice.

After graduating from Canberra School of Art in 1997, Jessica has worked as an independent studio artist in over fifty national and international exhibitions, and has co-founded Gate 8 Workshop, a not-for-profit organisation that provides space for local professional artists. Jessica has won the Tom Malone Art Prize in both 2004 and 2007, the Ranamok prize, and has been recognised as ‘Outstanding New Artist in Glass’ by Urban Glass in New York. As a talented advocate of Australian glass practice, the Australian Design Centre believes Jessica’s work is testament to innovation in the field.
