Jack Storms glass sculpting begins at the heart of the design, by creating a core of lead crystal which is cut, polished and laminated creating reflective mirrors. When wrapped in optical glass, the refraction of light as it passes through the glass art creates rainbows of hypnotic color. The 10-week process of repetitive cutting, grinding and polishing requires intense passion and rigid self discipline. Join us at the gallery, August 17th and August 18th, for refreshments as Jack dedicates and presents his work.
