Our annual showcase of contemporary Australian glass

Glass is one of the most exciting and dynamic art forms in this country. It is a uniquely captivating medium, capable of almost endless transformation. Glass provides a perfect vehicle for the exploration of a range of themes, from the personal to the observational, and Australian makers are some of the world leaders in the medium.

Now in its fifteenth year, the Tom Malone Prize is a highly respected and eagerly anticipated event for contemporary Australian glass artists.


An acquisitive prize, each year’s winning entry becomes a part of the State Art Collection. Since its inception, it has facilitated the entry of significant glass works by winners Gabriella Bisetto, Nick Mount, Jessica Loughlin, Clare Belfrage, Benjamin Sewell, Kevin Gordon, Charles Butcher, Cobi Cockburn, Deirdre Feeney, Brian Corr, Tom Moore and Mel Douglas into the State Art Collection.

The Tom Malone Prize 2017 brings together many of Australia's best glass artists. Featuring this year's 10

short-listed artists: Marc Leib, Jamie Worsley, Kevin Gordon, Blanche Tilden, Lisa Cahill, Brenden Scott French, Richard Whiteley, Tom Moore, Silvana Ferrario and Jenni Kamarre Martiniello.

The exhibition will include this year’s shortlist and the works from all past winners of the Prize.

The winner of the 2017 Prize will be announced on Friday 31 March 2017.

A LUMINOUS CELEBRATION | FREE

ARTIST IN FOCUS - Tom Moore

12-12.45pm, Saturday 1 April
Tom Moore has been working with hot glass for 25 years in a spirit of humour and wonder. Striving to invigorate the audience experience of glass has led Tom to embrace new technologies through collaboration with digital photographers and animators. Tom’s work combines aspects of the technical and social histories of glassmaking with incongruous narrative elements in the pursuit of profound cognitive shifts. Borders between the realms of animal, vegetable, mineral and personal are liquefied to create characters that echo the metamorphic quality of glass.

This unusually entertaining artist talk will reveal a life dedicated to the continuation of an ancient craft and the pursuit of ideas with contemporary relevance.
