Artist Info:
Glass artist Jeremy SinkusJeremy Sinkus has been working with glass since 1998, but not as his first art medium. Metals and stone were the main passions Jeremy followed until he found borosilicate glass. Jeremy is an avid mineral collector and miner. He has dug and sold minerals all over the country, and has now incorporated this passion into his glass. Having spent a lot of his time on mountains and on the ocean, you can see the influence of opals and jaspers in his coloring, along with aquatic themes.

Jeremy is primarily self taught, which has given him the ability to develop a unique style. Because there is no use of any molds, every piece is an one of a kind. Made of borosilicate glass, (the same glass used in cookware and scientific applications such as beakers and test tubes) making the pieces durable and able to last for generations. Jeremy has been featured on HGTV's show "That's Clever" demonstrating how he makes a Glass Turtle Paperweight.

Artist Statement:
“Glass just seems to bring the ocean out of me. I grew up spending quality time fishing and snorkeling on Cape Cod Massachusetts. This experience, combined with my life as an artist, creates a line of work focusing on sea life. I’m also a scuba diver, which has deepened my love of the ocean. The visual experience of the deep helps create variety in my work, represented in my coral reef scenes and other aquatic environments. The sense of harmony when being immersed in the ocean helps create emotion that flows into my work using both clarity and color.

“To manipulate molten glass with fire is a way to look closer and experience what I love with an almost extreme mode of consciousness. This heightened sense of awareness is what I strive to maintain. It is the same sense I experience while diving. Staying present with my work helps me when trying to find a balance of color, light, transparency, and form. For me, glass is a perfect medium to mimic the sea while reflecting the fragility of the oceans sea life and eco-systems. My designs express what I miss, what I look forward to, and what I dream.”
