Tasmanian born Anne Sorensen has been a full time practicing glass artist since 1992. After completing courses in drawing and ceramics she discovered glass and developed a passion for expression in this medium.
Anne’s work is characterised by bold forms using very intricate combinations of coloured glass. Her sail-like sculptural forms reveal the labour intensive layering technique Anne has perfected through her years of play.
Sandra Black is a skilled ceramicist renowned for her delicate pierced and carved porcelain forms and vessels. Beautiful soft green Celadon glazes are also a signature decoration on her elegant porcelain forms.
You can learn from Sandra’s 30+ years of experience working with porcelain by enrolling in one of the ceramics courses she tutors as part of our Adults Learning Program. Click Courses in the menu bar above for more information.

Julie Holmes Jewellery Designer
Julie Holmes is a contemporary jewellery designer and maker. All of her pieces are handmade using porcelain and various metals.
African art traditions, particularly Nigerian ceramics, inspire the way she shapes her designs. Julie uses porcelain for its purity and for the satisfying way its smooth surface facilitates marking and texturing. The employment of painted brass, silver, oxidised copper, waxed cotton and nylon thread further emphasises this love for scoring, beating, moulding and weaving.
