Jack Storms Glass Sculptures Are a Unique And Rare Art Form That Takes 18 Weeks For One Piece

jack storms glass sculptures feat

When artist jack storms wanted to build kaleidoscopic glass sculptures, people told him that it’s impossible. But like many other talented artists he didn’t agree with this notion and decided to press on. His vision turned him to one of the most innovative artist in the world today. He started dealing and creating with this rare physically intense art form and climbed to the top of the glass sculpting world. Jack uses lead crystal and dichroic glass to create one of a kind glass sculptures that you will never forget.

The unique sculptures you see below takes 18 weeks to produce because of a hard and rare cold-glass process that is used. This whole thing makes Storms just one of three glass craftsmen in the United States that work with this unique art form.

The thing that sets the work of Storm apart in my opinion is the fact he takes inspiration from everyday stuff like a baseball bat or wine glasses, this brings life to usually boring items we use every day ” Many people see old worked glass as being very technical and distant from the human experience. I try to overcome that and seek to make a bridge from myself to the work. I strive to bring a sense of organic nature to all of my pieces.”
