Fantastik Spectrum Cube
Cold glass artist Jack Storms takes this universally approachable form, the cube, to the next level. The Spectrum Cube features six optical lenses and architectural colored glass lines the core of the piece making it a cube sculpture like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The optical lenses are optional in this piece but allow you to see the core in magnified angles. The Spectrum Cube refracts, reflects and casts colored shadows.
The Fantastik Spectrum Cube features a Deluxe crosscut core which is made with a cold glass technique developed by Jack Storms and never seen used before by anybody in the industry but him. It takes the artist 18 to 24 months to finish each one of these unique pieces of fine art. There are no straight lines within this piece whatsoever.The results? Think about a cube, now think about a diamond, now put them together in one piece – right there you have the Fantastik Spectrum Cube. This is a limited collection piece.
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.
