backtracking 7/8: mint museum of craft + design

We also squeezed in a visit to the Mint Museum of Craft + Design which I thoroughly enjoyed. Here are some of my favourite pieces. I seemed to be in a glass and metal mood. Must have been the influence of the city. The last two photos are jewellery pieces and the very last one is made entirely of hypodermic needles.

The hypodermic needle piece is amazing. It looks like a Mongolian hat.

robyn...this was my favourite piece! I wish I had written sown the name of the artist who was from somewhere like Uzbekistan or Kazakhstan or somehere in that region.

layers...it really is inspiring! Why don't we do it more often?
