Cups by Kim Foale
Salt bowls by Kim Foale

This December, Off Centre features new work by members Kim Foale and creative team NosMos.  

Kim Foale lives in the hills in the Southern Midlands surrounded by dry sclerophyll forest. Foale takes inspiration from the things she sees every day and uses found objects to make marks in her work. Her limited edition sclerophyll cups have been made using bark from tall blue gums on her property.

Free Range: glass by Andrea Harris

The hens are laying well this season.  And what is one to do with all those eggs?
My glass is functional, safe to eat from.   It’s created with a love of the medium – glass lets in light, it lets light pass through, it bends the light as it passes. Glass is a super-cooled form of silica.  A super-cooled liquid is a metastable liquid that has been cooled below its melting point.  Which make glass cool.  Super cool.  Glass.

Late night trading at Off Centre during December

This year Off Centre will be open for late night Christmas trading at Salamanca Arts Centre on Friday evenings (7th, 14th and 21st December).  Drop in after work, browse SAC shops and galleries, and enjoy free live music with Rektango in the courtyard.  Only in December, so don't miss it!
