The most interesting man in Australian glass…

…according to the Yanks – and, you know, it’s a bloody hard claim to refute.

 

 

Completely forgot to post this last week (mea culpa, Nige) So you’ve missed the Lecture, alas. But for anyone booting around Pittsburgh this month, get on down to the Glass Centre.

LECTURE + SPECIAL DEMONSTRATION WEDNESDAY, MAY 30 6-8PM

Join us for a special evening with Nick Mount, one of Australia’s most accomplished and celebrated studio glass artists, on Wednesday, May 30 from 6 to 8pm. Get to know Nick and enjoy his wry Australian wit, learn more about the inspiration for his artwork, get a sneak preview of his exhibition and have an up-close opportunity to watch him create his work.
Nick is here to present a new exhibition called “10 Years of Bottles and Bobs: A Survey” that opens on Friday, June 1 and runs through July 15, 2012 at PGC.
Fast approaching his fifth decade working in the field, Nick Mount has been at the forefront of innovation and achievement in glass since the early 1970s. He was aptly named this year’s “Living Treasure: Masters of Australian Craft” by Object, the Australian Centre for Craft and Design.
We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, May 30.

The Gang’s visit to Artisan coincided with Nick’s new show which was an unexpected, though happy, bonus. We haven’t got a list of works – so no titles, sorry. You’ll just have to enjoy them in a job lot.

Loved the Japanese fabric, Nick, and the drawn patterning.

It’s a show with great élan.  That’s what we like about Nick’s work, the verve – and that infectious sense of genuine enjoyment. As for the skill factor, hey, it goes without saying that he’s nonpareil.
