WHEN LOVE AND ART COLLIDE | VALENTINES DAY
Artists have always found inspiration in a number of places, but none more enduring is the inspiration found in love.
With Valentines Day around the corner we are presenting some original works of art that celebrate the heart.
Justin Culina's recent "Love Knot" uses blown glass to create an intricate knot. While this may appear like one solid sculpture, it is actually a kinetic piece whereby the knot pulls apart. The knot represents two individuals coming together.
Available in various colours.
