Nick Mount

NickMountThe beautiful collection of glass sculptures shown above is the work of Australia’s master craftsman, Nick Mount.  This most accomplished and celebrated studio glass artist was named Living Treasure: Master of Australian Craft in 2012.  In one of his exhibition entitled, ‘The Fabric of Work’, he was quoted as saying:

“I identify as a maker and believe “work” is fundamental in the development of identity. This principal extends well beyond those of us that call ourselves “craftspeople” and, for me, the fabric of our community is, to a large extent, determined by the work we do with our hands.”

BUS

BusWould be nice if there were more available funding for functional creative projects like this bus stop in Baltimore, MD. The letter shapes of BUS allow passengers to assume different comfortable positions and the letter ‘B’ provides handicap-accessible shelter making all the waiting passengers part of the art. The project is a collaboration between Spanish collective designers, mmmm and Creative Alliance of Baltimore. You can read more about the project here at Creative Alliance.
