The “ViviOvo” Collection is Storms’ only muse inspired sculpture and this most recent version, the Fantastik ViviOvo Lux Core, came to life through blood, sweat and tears. Since 2005, Jack Storms had been working on the Fantastik ViviOvo and with the first piece of a very limited collection of sculptures finished in May 2016, he is happy to unveil his newest masterpiece. This piece has a crosscut lux core, which Storms designed using his signature cold glass technique. Gaze into this breathtaking piece for only seconds and it will hypnotize you with its beauty and perfection. Jack and Vivian Storms both attended an art show at the end of May 2016 and the very first Fantastik ViviOvo was sold within 5 minutes.
Each one of Jack Storms cold glass sculptures starts at the core. The artist then cuts, grinds, polishes and laminates the glass together, hundreds of times; until he achieves the core design he aspires for. Jack is known to reference the theory of Fibonacci throughout the creation of all his glass designs. He then encases the core into optical crystal and hand sculpts each piece to shape. Each one of his glass sculptures takes anywhere from six to twenty four weeks to create and all of his artworks are original pieces of fine art. All of Jack Storms glass sculptures are designed using a cold-working lathe. There is no heat involved in the process whatsoever. The materials used on each one of Jack Storms’ glass sculptures are 32% optical lead crystal, optical crystal and dichroic glass.
