Glass master #2

NZ glass artist, Luke Jacomb, is turning heads in Seattle with his pioneering use of photosensitive glass. While the product itself was invented during WW2, Jacomb is believed to be the first artist to incorporate it into his work. In his most recent exhibition, Jacomb created a link between photosensitivity and photosynthesis by using a recurring leaf motif. Says the 26-year-old; “I have a whole lifetime of ideas ahead of me. This is just the start.”
