This is…. amazing. 19th century glass artistry being preserved in a small town in England. Artist David A. Smith is commissioned to make the album art for John Mayer’s Born & Raised album. This is hand-drawn, time-consuming, old world craftsmanship at its best. Smith also makes special, one-of-a-kind guilded glass signs for “The Mr. John C. Mayer, Co.” to accompany it.
This is sooooo worth your time.
There’s an additional David A. Smith documentary short here.
