Welcome to Internal Fire Glass

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