This morning Nick Mount spoke at the Canberra Glassworks as part of his touring exhibition:The Fabric of Work. I was fortunate enough to see his exhibition in Geelong last year, but really appreciated the opportunity today to hear Nick Mount talk about his life and work. The exhibition is at the Canberra Glassworks until 19 June 2014.
A leading figure in the Australian glass scene, Nick Mount was honoured in 2012 by Object: Australia Centre for Design as the subject of a Living Treasure: Masters of Australian Craft survey exhibition.
The exhibition features a series of sculptural assemblages that range in scale and character and describe an aesthetic that is both provocative and playful, intimate and spectacular.
