The history of Blue TierDrop:
Fortunately, two of Jack Storms most popular glass sculptures came to life by accident. While working on an Aerial, a studio accident happened and left the Aerial with two of its corners smashed. Jack decided to turn the accident into another beautiful creation. Jack envisioned a different piece from what was left of the Aerial as it was lying on the floor. He curved the corners into a flowing droplet and beveled the top of the piece. The Blue TierDrop was born, sparkling like the stars on a clear blue night. Jack had turned a negative into a happy accident! The Blue Tierdrop features a beautiful accent of blue starfire glass.
Storms then cuts, grinds, polishes and laminates the glass together. Then he encases the core into optical crystal and hand sculpts each piece. Each one of his original pieces of fine art glass sculptures takes anywhere from 6 to 24 weeks to finish. The glass sculptures are designed using a cold-working lathe. There is no heat 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.
