Scott Pernicka – Glass Artist

Internal Fire Glass is the home of award-winning glass artist Scott Pernicka.

Scott’s handcrafted glass vortex spheres are an amazing alchemy of glass and physics that transcend the physicality of the glass itself. The optical illusion created with high-quality glass and master craftsmanship is a visual escape in the palm of your hand. Using science, physics, artistic vision and a meticulous attention to detail, Scott handcrafts each piece exclusively with Borosilicate (hard) glass for clarity. Shaping the glass at temperatures over 3000 degrees, a combination of 99.99% pure gold, silver, crystallized metals, or metal oxides are added to produce an array of beautiful colors. Exquisite and complex, each vortex sphere is a one-of-a-kind reflection of Scott’s passion for fine art craftsmanship that will last for generations to come.
