B. Jane Cowie
(b. 1962, Australia)
With over 25 years experience in working with glass, B. Jane Cowie has gained a tremendous understanding towards the medium from its technique to application.
In 1997, her pursuit for knowledge lead her to research about the development of studio glassmaking in South Australia. It showed her the perspective of understanding a 'maker's' and 'observer's' understanding of objects, and turned it into a theoretical key element that she would apply in her works as well. Apart from that, her works focuses on the emotional connection between people, and how communication plays a huge part in influencing the outcome of her art. Currently residing in Singapore, she factors in the importance of cultural diversity and how it may translate into her works.
