The history of the Rose Green Aerial:
The Aerial is one of the first cold glass sculptures designed by Jack Storms. This piece was inspired by air and light and the shape was meant to give a sense of enlightenment. The sculpture has a lead crystal core with a pointed tip to catch all reflections that the rounded bottom and the colored core can push its way. The curves and lines of this piece make it one of the best sellers. Despite the size of the Aerial, the colors within the sculpture are constantly changing according to the light, time of the day, surrounding colors and external influencers. The Rose/Green Aerial was designed after the original Aerial. It comes from the same inspiration as the standard Aerial but because of the added colors its observers are taken for a different visual experience. Its been said that this specific Aerial makes a sunset available any time.
He executes his colors by layering dichroic glass through optic crystal in multiple different layers each angled differently to catch light. The different colors of dychic glass come from the materials he uses gold, silver, magnesium and copper. Those all create a color when illuminated and stacked on top of each other. The color spectrum comes from the different luminosity of light and temperatures of light. If you were to put two different light sources on the piece at one given time it would increase the colors in the piec. He also uses spectrum glass in the hilt of some of his pieces such as rose green, purple, and blue.
