BellaVino | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
Wine and art have held a relationship for ages in which one has always fueled the other. Needless to say, the BellaVino was a natural form that came to mind. The thought process behind the BellaVino was to create a piece that would spearhead his artistic movement for many years to come as well as be recognizable to his collectors. The visual bounty comes from the pattern in the body of the BellaVino and flows up to compress itself in the neck. The optics are equally liquid and stunning.
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 ideation and 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.
