Member Profile profile for Cara Pearson
Cara is currently completing her Honours in Art, Architecture and Design at the University of South Australia, specialising in hot glass. Her current work explores the psychological manifestation of perfectionist tendencies and their effect on how, as a glass artist, she is able to create work within the hotshop setting. She is currently writing her thesis using work created in the hotshop as her primary research. The underlying theme to much of her past and continuing work has been the idea of a second hand nostalgia, explored through the obsolete and forgotten objects of the past. These ideas have been explored through work that spans both glass and ceramics, encompassing ceramic slip casting, furnace casting and blown works.
