Artwork Description

Glass on glass

Signed on the back.

Trio of blown glass: green leaf, red bud and a smaller red bud with red & blue dots.

The prickly pear is a terribly widespread weed. Perhaps you have memories of the prickly pear from your grandparents' farm, or one in the neighbour's front yard. Emma started noticing how prolific this plant is after a visit to her maternal grandparents’ birthplace in Malta, where prickly pear cacti line the landscape.

Emma Young is South Australian born & bred, often making local references in her glass artwork. Working out of the JamFactory glass studio, Emma enjoys exploring different techniques with each new developing work. Themes often involve nostalgia, pride in local icons, and personal childhood memories. She can be followed online @emmayoungglass
