Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Jack Storms

Both a tremendous athlete and a motivated student growing up in New Hampshire, it wasn’t until later in life that Jack Storms discovered his passion for contemporary art.

At 30 years old, Jack graduated Plymouth State University with a BA in Art focusing primarily on studio production.

It was during his junior year at PSU that he stumbled upon a nearby studio of a glass artist producing a rare style of glass artwork by combining lead crystal and dichroic glass using a cold-glass process.

Jack worked alongside this fellow artist for over a year to learn every component and facet of this incredibly challenging and unusual art form.

 

Jack’s first major accomplishments as an independent glass artist was to invent and design a cold-working lathe that offers him the ability to turn glass and sculpt shapes with curves and details like one would produce from a wooden medium.

Early memories of studying his fathers craftsmanship as he worked for hours in his own studio with a wooden lathe provided him with the blueprint of his vision.

His intense drive and deeply embedded passion as a glass artist combined with the inspiration that came from the idea of pioneering new trails was extremely intense, time consuming and physically demanding,  but no obstacle was going to get in the way of his dreams.

  1. I really like this art, as everyone probably knows, I like art and pictures with lots of color. Nothing glass would ever last in our home (cats) but it’s fun to imagine what these would look like around the house.

    1. I must admit I have a weakness for anything that sparkles. This glasswork is amazing. So many colors, so many angles…I could gaze at it all day! But I too have cats (and a dog) so any sparkly thing I have would be in the breakfront where the light couldn’t find it.
