Optic Eye | Glass Sculpture by Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms
The first piece Jack Storms ever designed was the Optic Eye. To him, it was a simple advancement of what he had already learned of optic cold-glass working. Previously, all the shapes he had worked on or seen had a front and back with distinct boundaries. This work allowed him to shape the corners into the sides as he angled the piece from side to side. He did not intend to shape an “Eye” form; it just happened as he explored the concept of pushing the cold work from an art that was very technical and distinct from the human experience to something that seems more like it was organically created. The Optic Eye can also be created in two additional versions when lined with blue or rose/green opticial glass, respectively named the Sapphire Eye or the Bloodshot Eye.
