Contemporary glass artist Jeff Zimmerman creates colorful, organic sculptures that exploit advanced glassmaking techniques—disquieting and spinning, his sculptures call attention to the inherent mutability of the world. He went on to study classical Venetian glassblowing and master Italian techniques, apprenticing with masters (and ultimately, becoming one of his own) who approached glass-making in a conceptual, experimental way.
His sculptures and functional pieces exploit techniques of advanced glassmaking and the defining properties of glass itself -- the way it hovers between liquid and solid states, its reflectivity and tactile qualities, its habit of moving constantly while still molten -- to evoke a dimension of experience where things are happening that we can feel but not necessarily define. His signature organic shapes are intensely colorful but soft, mysterious but welcoming, disquieting yet familiar.
Unique single serpentine light sculpture in black hand-blown glass.
