Duncan Young & Noah Hartley

Duncan Young & Noah Hartley — Cast Chair, 2022


Cast Chair is a union between the two distinct material driven practices of Noah Hartley and Duncan Young Noah is a glassblower and designer; Duncan is a furniture designer and arborist. Reflecting on their own craft-focused backgrounds, their collaboration came from a motivation to develop a new body of work through inhabiting each other’s studios. CastChair showcases a contrast of materials and the diverse making processes involved in working with cast glass and timber. 

Duncan Young is an Adelaide based object and furniture designer, and is currently a continuing associate within JamFactory’s Furniture Studio. Having begun his exploration of timber as a climbing arborist, Young’s work connects domestic timber objects with their origin as the trees found in the forests and backyards of Australia. Noah Hartley is a Designer and Glassblower from South Australia. After studying Design Arts at the Australian National University, he moved to Adelaide to complete JamFactory’s Associate Program in Glass. Now a studio tenant at JamFactory, Noah draws upon the rich history of glassmaking in his contemporary design practice
