"December Song" by Jon Kuhn, 2000

Summary

Jon Kuhn’s diamond-like, dazzling glass cubes earned him world-renown. Unlike many other studio artists who work with molten glass, Kuhn works only with cold glass. These complex artworks are extremely labor intensive; each piece is cut, polished, and laminated to create an environment that pulls the viewer into a glittering world of color and light.
