2017 Excellence in Glass

I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, a country with a long tradition of beautiful glass made with impeccable craftsmanship. I make my body of work from the highest grade of optical glass which I grind, polish, laminate, color, and sand blast. Every piece is one of a kind, and is the result of hours of labor. My work is inspired by clean geometric shapes. My pieces feature bold colors and crisp lines that optically reflect on themselves and refract light creating kaleidoscopic results. I ultimately seek a balance of symmetry and asymmetry, shape and color.

Flame working is my primary technique. I first create all of my intricate detail in the flame at the torch. I use lost wax casting on my larger pieces. I then cut, grind, and alter the glass in order to fit with my metal work.

Woven glass is an enigma, a contradiction, a complex and beautiful mystery. It challenges the observer in his perceptions of material properties. It is at once soft, like a delicate fabric and cold, vitreous and eternal. Metaphorically, it is the intersection of dreams, the impossible made possible. Simply stated, I weave with glass. It's not an illusion, it is truly woven. My work is the result of skilled glass cutting, careful color selection, and precisely controlled kiln firing. The technique of glass weaving is a painstaking, multi-stage process that involves forming thin strips of glass into sinusoidal waves, creating the weft. Straight (warp) pieces are then fed through rows of wefts. The resulting structure is then melted over a hand sculpted, clay mold within the kiln. The woven glass surfaces are then mounted in heavy, steel frames for wall hanging.

The luminescent qualities of glass appeal to me as it responds to light. I am drawn to the potential of a material that can vary from a translucent to an opaque medium in a brilliant range of colors and gradations. I create blown glass using Swedish overlay techniques layering colored glass in the walls and on the surface of the glass forms. I carve the surface of the pieces with diamond wheels to remove layers of glass and expose colors within the piece. The blown pieces become the canvas for the carving process and the carving becomes the core of the design in each piece. Through this cold working process, I have been able to explore the potential of the material and focus my artistic vision. I am creating a relationship between the interior and exterior by juxtaposing opaque and translucent, glossy & matte, with light and dark. The balance that is revealed connects the conscious with the subconscious as the voice of the material emerges through the reflections of light.

Scott Hronich-Pernicka

Malta, NY

Sculpting glass since 1998, Scott Pernicka is most known for his vortex marbles. These perfectly round spheres with spirals of color play with optics and physics to create visual depths that transcend the physicality of the piece itself. With meticulous rigor, Scott uses a flame-working process to melt and shape high-quality, Borosilicate (hard) glass at temperatures well over 3000 degrees. Colors are produced by adding precious metals, such as gold and silver, along with gemstones and crushed opal. Scott Pernicka was born in Santa Fe and grew up on a cattle ranch in northern New Mexico. Working in glass and combining the qualities of color and form, Scott continually discovers new creative possibilities in his artistic practice. Pernicka�s glass spheres, jewelry, and sculptures can be found in galleries across the United States, and are held in private collections throughout the world.

By focusing on the transparency and fluidity of molten glass, I create work that represents the look and feeling of what the glass is like when it is hot. Scale, color, balance and motion are always considered.
