Rare Art Using a Cold Glass Process
My neighbors, who are serious art collectors, introduced me to the work of glass artist Jack Storms. One of his sculptures holds a prominent position in their house. It sparkles under generous natural light.
Each glass sculpture by Jack Storms takes months to complete. Using a rare cold glass process, he finely layers pieces of dichroic glass using transparent epoxy. Upon achieving the light and imagery effects he desires, Storms then surrounds the luminous core he constructed with clear glass or crystal. Because the process requires so much precision, Storms uses the Fibonacci sequence or golden ratio to ensure that his work looks natural rather than mechanical.
