Zephyr’s Theme

Jon Kuhn

Jon Kuhn's (1949- ) spectacular sculptures are highly polished forms which vibrate with color and light. Using transparent optical glass, Kuhn suspends complex constructions of multi colored glass which reflect and refract light in rainbows of spectral colors. His interest in spirituality, architecture and music imbue these works which explore the ephemeral nature of light. He was the youngest artist working in glass ever to have a work acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. His sculpture has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States and internationally in spaces such as the Glass Art Gallery Toronto, Canada; Wheaton American Glass Museum, Millville, New Jersey; The Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; the High Museum, Atlanta, Georgia; the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, District of Columbia, and the Glas Museum Ebeltoft, Ebeltoft, Denmark. Kuhn's works are in the permanent collection of many other museums including; the Museum for Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, Germany, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit, Michigan, and the Asheville Art Museum.
