#4 ASPEN BUSINESS CONNECT REAL PROFILES WITH LEX LUCIUS, Artist, Designer. www.instagram.com/tv/CKfp_c0lwjl/From our blog: "For the past decade, I have been the sole fabricator of the Herbert Bayer estate sculptures....The resulting works that I created have been placed in private collections and corporate locations throughout the country, including two monumental works recently installed across from The Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN. The work of bringing Bayer’s models to the public continues in my new location in Basalt, where I am working on midsize versions that may one day be realized on a monumental scale. I am also working on my own painting and sculpture and would enjoy fabricating for other valley artists. My studio is open to visitors by appointment.

Let me tell you what it’s like living with these mountains outside our window.I sit and meditate to their energy and receive messages to keep going on my path. To persevere.When I am on the phone with my beloved 83 year old mother I get reassured that she is okay and I soon will be able to be with her again.When I am exhausted and frustrated I look up from my work and they beckon me to drop it all and come play to reset.When I get a call from a friend in need the mountains urge me to stop what I am doing and go help.and when the sun hits the peaks in the morning they seem to call me to awake and attack the day with enthusiasm and positivity.Our mountains. Feel the energy. Listen to the messages. Get after it. #mountainlife#aspenreallife#themountainsarecalling ...
