The history of the Blue Full Core Spectrum Cube with Lenses:
Cold glass artist Jack Storms takes this universally approachable form, the cube, to the next level. The core of the sculpture consists of the finest optical lead crystal that has been cut and polished to precision. Once the core is complete, it is surrounded with an optical crystal that camouflages, giving the appearance of a floating core. The Blue Spectrum Cube features six optical lenses and architectural colored glass lines the core of the piece making it a cube sculpture like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The Blue Spectrum Cube refracts, reflects and casts colored shadows.
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 dichroic 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 piece. He also uses spectrum glass in the hilt of some of his pieces such as rose green, purple, and blue.
