Blue Aerial | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
The Blue Aerial was born when Jack was experimenting with colored glass. Although it is the same shape as the standard Aerial, this piece resonates with its admirers in a much different way. This piece reminds you of the serene blue sky and the many shapes the clouds take on. Looking into the Blue Aerial is like looking into the endless sky and you can’t help but daydream.
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.
