GEORGE JERCICH'S FREE ARTIST PORTFOLIO


My passion as an artist is to work 3 dimensionally. I prefer mixed media including blown, fused, cast glass and welded metal. Glass to me, is one of the most challenging and rewarding material experiences as a craft. The ability of glass to take form and color is enhanced by its surface qualities and transparency. I try not to favor one technique or style in glassforming but use many different ones to achieve an overall three dimensional sculptural result.

Thematic of the lore of the sea and seafarers, I like to think of each piece of glass and mixed media sculpture as a kind of voyage. Sometimes, I blow a vessel into a bottle’s form to refer to something about the sea. Other times, I will fashion a boat hull as a vessel form to compare and contrast the form of the bottle to. By way of content, I attempt to narrate a story of my own invention through the work. I also find it amusing to speculate on the relationship between the bottle or the boat as they are both considered types of vessels.
