1 August 2011 | South Australian glass artist Nick Mount has been chosen by Sydney's Object Centre for Craft and Design as its Living Treasure for 2012.

Approaching the fourth decade of his career, Mount is known for his use of traditional Venetian decorative techniques, which he freely adapts to his own sculptural style.

Object also announced Tasmanian Lola Greeno as its Living Treasure for 2014.

The Living Treasure is invited to stage an exhibition with Object, which then tours nationally. To date, over 230,000 people around Australia have enjoyed the Living Treasures series in 30 different locations.
