ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Karen Cunningham was Creative Director of JamFactory’s Glass Studio from 2010 to 2019. She studied at the University of South Australia and completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Glass). Her Honours (First Class) work was selected for the PICA National Graduate Exhibition in 2005, and given the Design Institute of Australia Achievement Award for Glass Design.

She has worked and trained in the USA, Turkey, Europe and the UK where she was mentored by Marc Newson after winning a Qantas Spirit of Youth Award.
Illumini is the collaborative work of Karen Cunningham and glass artist Mandi King.
When filling the decanter, the contact point acts to effectively aerate; separating and moving the liquid radially over the curved walls, coming to rest in the base reservoir. This aeration is imperative for decanting wine.
