Tom Moore draws on ancient glass-blowing techniques to create sculptures that burst with colour and narrative, morphing creatures and machines into wild forms.

This display features Tom Moore’s fantastical glass creatures, purchased for the collection in 2019 with the support of the Gallery’s Contemporary Collectors, alongside work selected by Moore from the Gallery’s vast decorative arts collection.

Installed in a cabinet adjacent to AGSA’s permanent exhibition of Morris & Co. material, Moore’s intervention highlights the enduring legacy of craft and design in South Australia.
