Jon Kuhn Biography


Jon Kuhn photo

Jon Kuhn is regarded as one of the leading glass artists in the world.  With works featured in over 30 international museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Carnegie Museum, White House Permanent Collection,  National Museum of American Art and hundreds of private residences and public spaces, millions have enjoyed his beautiful works.

Being trained in ceramics, Mr. Kuhn first worked in clay and experimented with various silicate compounds.  Eventually, he began working with cold glass in geometric shapes with the cube becoming the core component.

Today, the medium in which Mr. Kuhn works is unlike that used by most glass artists.  Where the majority work with molten or blown glass, Mr. Kuhn works in cold glass that is cut, polished, and fused into a myriad of shapes from the inside out.  The result is a sculpture that takes in surrounding light, then reflects and refracts it back into space much like a fine diamond.

The detail and breadth of labor involved in creating one of these masterpieces is unlike any other glasswork in the world.  No two are alike and once created, they are timeless as they appear to change color and radiance when viewed from different angles and lighting.

Having started working by himself in a vacant auto shop in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, he now enlists the aid of 27 artisans producing these unique pieces.  To come from a local, one-man studio, to having an international reputation is one of the great success stories in the world of fine art.  His desire is to continue creating beautiful works, every one unique, bringing light and joy to those who experience them..
