From his beginning with the legendary Budgeree Glass company to the international acclaim he received for his stunning scent bottle series, the 30-year career and key artistic work of contemporary Australian glass blower Nick Mount is traced in this book. A range of Mount's work is exhibited and interpreted to reveal how he adapted traditional hot glass techniques to create works distinguished by incandescent color. The history of the blown-glass industry in Australia is discussed with information on Mount's role as a mentor and business pioneer.
