Full Core Cube
Full Core Cube | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
The Full Core Cube is another favorite from the Storms Cube Collection. As the name implies, this piece has a full core within the cube which consists of the finest optical lead crystal that has been cut and polished to precision. Once the core is complete, it is surrounded with an optical glass that camouflages, giving the appearance of a floating core. The Full Core Cube is quite easy on the eyes!
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.
