Meet Nick Mount

Nick Mount is one of Australia’s most accomplished and celebrated studio glass artists. Approaching his fifth decade working in the field, he has been at the forefront of innovation and achievement since the early 1970s.

Mount’s earliest and most enduring influences include the US west coast glass scene and the traditions of the Venetians. Informed but not confined by tradition, Mount is known for his production, commission and exhibition work. Since the late 1990s the latter has comprised of an evolving series of sculptural assemblages. Ranging in scale and character, they describe an aesthetic that is both provocative and playful, intimate and spectacular.

Mount’s work is represented in major public and private collections and his reputation as a generous teacher, demonstrator and mentor sees him teaching regularly at glass centres around the world.

 

Nick has received funding from the Australia Council for the Arts

About The Works

“This work is part of a new series I have been developing as an extension to my Still Life compositions.

Comprising imagined fruit-like forms in composition with ‘soft’ geometric blown glass shapes, I am using traditional Venetian techniques to talk to my intrigue with the formal structure and rhythm that underpins the generosity and softness we find in nature.

The asymmetry of the ‘Damaged Goods’ are presented as objects of beauty in their own right, inviting contemplation of the way in which we assign value to that which may present as being slightly less than ‘perfect’.”

– Nick Mount
