Jon Goldberg’s Nature Inspired Glass Art

Glass artist Jon Goldberg creates exquisite pieces where he combines patterns found in nature with a minimalist form. See some of his artwork below.

Jon-Goldberg

"Glass is a unique material, able to reflect and refract light. I exaggerate these properties of glass, using thick walled forms having a curvature and incorporating colored elements at specific depths within the clear material to maximize the optical effects. Shadows and reflections between layers and interior walls are planned, though surprise results are frequent and welcome." - Goldberg

The Organisms

The Organisms are creatures forever captured in glass. Their form is simple and modernist, but the inner structure is complicated and organic. The reflective and refractive qualities of glass create an added dimension to these works.

The Families

The Families are sculptures composed of multiple individual Organisms which form a family unit, either genetically related or not. A careful look will reveal attributes which are passed on from generation to generation.

Water

Two different formulas of glass are used in this series. Both are colorless, however they possess different indexes of refraction. When the two glasses are combined, the result resembles water droplets or rivulets inside the piece.
