Jon Kuhn Glass

Bringing the classic field of glassmaking into the contemporary age, Jon Kuhn incorporates innovative design into his pieces. Based in a studio in North Carolina, Jon Kuhn is rapidly becoming one of the most popular glass artists still producing today.

Following his studies as a graduate student in art at Virginia Commonwealth University, Kuhn pursued his passion for glassmaking from a relatively unique perspective. Unlike many contemporaries, Kuhn works in the field of cold glass, which means he does not blow or meld molten pieces. Rather, he takes solid, formed glass components and cuts and polishes them into brilliant works of art.

Many of Kuhn's pieces evolve out of architectural construction, as many works are built from the inside out with finely honed and polished glass pieces. Resulting are examples of glass art that mesmerize with their vibrancy and luminosity, drawing the viewer in with their detail and remarkable technical finesse.
