ViviOvo D’Oro | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
The “ViviOvo” Collection is Storms’ only muse inspired sculpture and this version, the ViviOvo D’Oro, contains touches of exquisite gold glass. When he first showed his future wife his artwork, she pointed out the form that he had left mostly undeveloped and lazily named the egg as her favorite. With some new inspiration and a strong desire to impress, Jack focused and researched all things egg. The artist modeled the new design from both the “Golden Mean Egg” and the “Fibonacci Egg.” Using natural geometry, he set to shape and polish. The result is a form that is as beautiful as it is difficult to create. The “ViviOvo” sculpture beams with radiant light and colors from within having been created after the intense beauty and fire burning within his wife Vivian.
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.
