ViviOvo | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
The “ViviOvo” is Storms’ only muse inspired sculpture. When he first met his future wife, Vivian, she saw the perfection in the imperfect. Vivian was able to look passed the flaws and see something amazing. It was Vivian’s tenacity, positive attitude and entrepreneurial spirit that allowed them both to flourish into a great team. Jack was immediately inspired by this vivacious woman and knew he could accomplish anything.
The artist modeled the new design from the “Golden Mean 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.
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.
