Artists: Salt x Erik Anders
Among Salt’s masterpieces, he has collaborated with Eric Anders in order to create a new creature which, will leave you perplexed. “Siberian Pinkle” is a fusion of three colors which the artists have created themselves. This recycler design is adorned with a mouthful of sharp teeth along with two all-seeing eyes along with glass nobs resembling small worms. The teeth along with the beast-like qualities are trademark of Salt’s pieces.
Salt, an American glass blowing artist from Austin, Texas (blowing glass since 2001), is one of functional glass’ best artist is widely recognized for his creature like pieces adorned with sharp teeth, chicken eyes and frankly, pieces that resemble a Dr. Frankenstein experiment. Salt states the following regarding his pieces, “As an artist I see art both historically, as well as on a level operating as form of release for those who create. Art that’s considered good, while this is subjective and thus differs from person to person, oftentimes carries a message that more people can identify with.” And we strongly agree with Salt. His pieces reflect a rawness of life never seen before in glassblowing.
