Optical Glass Sculptures by fine art glass artist Jack Storms
These beautifully reflective, hand-sculpted pieces begin with a core of dichroic glass pieces; each cut, polished and laminated until they shine like mirrors. This core is then wrapped in sculpted, optic glass which refracts the light passing through the pieces and creates a hypnotic light show of fire and ice colors.This sculpture process is incredibly intense and physically challenging. So much so, that in the entire world, there are only a handful of fine glass artisans working in this medium. It can take up to ten weeks to create these amazing designs.

In 2001 John Bramblitt Went Blind. A Year Later, He Began Painting
In 2001 John Bramblitt changed his epilepsy medication. Unfortunately his body had a bad reaction to the new medicine and his epileptic seizures got so severe that the damage caused his vision to go from 20/400 (double the limit for legal blindness) to complete blindness. While John maintained light perception, he was no longer able to see shadows or color. Strangely, it wasn't until John lost his eyesight that he started to paint.
