Thomas Pearson graduated from ANU’s School of Art in 2015, and following this, continued to look for opportunities to develop his techniques and ideas. In the USA in 2016, he further developed his practice learning new techniques from a variety of international artists as the recipient of the 2016 JamFactory-Pilchuck Glass School Scholarship. Thomas completed the two year Jamfactory Associate program in 2017.
Thomas is drawn to the physically and mentally challenging nature of glass, exploring the figurative in glass through the use of hot sculpting techniques. The material qualities of glass, its transparency and clarity, allow him to translate his ideas on the human condition.
