Jess Dare is a South Australia artist and contemporary jeweler. Practicing Flameworking for over 10 years having been taught by local and international glass artists, glass now forms an integral part of her practice.
“My work draws parallels between the different ways that throughout history people have attempted to preserve flowers by means of illustration, photography, flower pressing, specimen collection and botanical models. Another powerful influence has been the extraordinary works of Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka- particularly the highly realistic collection of glass plant models created by for Harvard University between 1887 to 1936.”
