Glen Burnie artist, Mino Re, will be featuring his cast stone sculptures in the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Md., on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 5-7, 2012. He will be accompanied by 250 of the nation’s most accomplished craft artists offering their one-of-a-kind handmade creations.
The cast stone sculptures created by Re, an Italian-born artist and engineer, are fashioned for the home or garden from his original designs and interpretations of historic art and sculpture. He draws his inspiration from intricate geometries such as Celtic Knots, fractal art, spirals, paisleys and steampunk patterns.
Before turning to crafts, Re worked in the field of architectural precast concrete and cast stone for over thirty years, designing and engineering solutions for new construction and restoration.
Mino Re has made notable cast stone achievements throughout his career. He designed the emblem for Johns Hopkins School of Nursing along with the stone panel casts for the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. In addition, he designed four seventeen-foot eagle bridge abutment panels for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
In addition to browsing Re’s latest works, visitors at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival can find art and fine crafts from more than 250 other nationally-known artists specializing in ceramics and pottery, jewelry, glass, leather, wood, metal, fashion, photography, fiber and fine art. Festival visitors will also be able to enjoy family entertainment, ongoing artist demonstrations and seasonal foods to sample and purchase.
