Informing Jack’s work is the exploration of the concepts of attachment and permanence and the relationships that families and individuals forge with treasured objects, that become the recorder and keeper of shared stories.
Jack embraces ancient and traditional techniques and materials like bronze and aluminium sand casting, turned metals and timbers and the creation of unique colours and wood stains, as well as the latest manufacturing technology and materials for industrial scale.
His work is consistently selected by curators for exhibition around Australia and has been selected to exhibit at the London Design Festival on three separate occasions.Most recently was awarded the Robert Juniper Award for the Arts and was runner-up Best Australian Designer at Denfair.
