The history of Siren:
The Siren is portrayed as the seductress who lures nearby sailors with enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. Similarly, this piece confronts the viewer with its beauty and draws them into its melody of light.
Each Siren starts at the core. The artist cuts, grinds, polishes and laminates the glass together, hundreds of times. Storms is known to reference the theory of Fibonacci throughout ideation and creation of all his glass designs. He then encases the core into optical crystal and hand sculpts each piece by hand. Each glass sculpture takes from six to twenty four weeks to create and all artworks are original pieces of fine art. All of Jack’s glass sculptures are designed using a cold-working lathe. There is never a heat source involved in the process. The materials used on each one of Jack Storms’ glass sculptures are 32% optical lead crystal, optical crystal and dichroic glass.
