Vida | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
The Vida is a piece inspired by romance. Jack created the Vida for the love of his life, Vivian, on Valentines Day of 2015. The Vida’s shape is meant to symbolize an open heart, mind and soul. The name Vivian means life in portuguese hence the reason Jack named this piece Vida. This piece will always be special to the Storms Family and any of its collectors.
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.
