What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Living Treasure!



Nick Mount

Glass blower Nick Mount makes glass fruits, vessels, perfume bottles, and other decorative objects that I just need to touch. There’s something so lovely and tactile-looking about his organic-looking matte-finished pieces I simply cannot resist. I was fortunate enough to see some of his wonderful pieces in person at the Corning Museum of Glass, though I was unfortunately unable to get them to let me touch anything.

One of the best known artists in the Australian studio glass movement, Mount has been working with glass for more than 45 years. In 2012, Mount was given the honorary title of Living Treasure by the Australian Center for Craft and Design.

You can check out more of his work on his website.

  4. I see what you mean about the urge to touch these fabulous pieces, even the photos cause that feeling, I can’t even assume how strong it must be in “person”. What a wonderful collections and artist. ~~dru~~

  5. Delicious! I would love an entire fruit bowl full of them. I had this vision of my children trying to spin a few of these like tops. Yikes. I had best not buy any of those shapes when I mug that leprechaun. I’ll just stick to the fruity ones.
