 “Glass just seems to bring the ocean out of me. I grew up spending quality time fishing and snorkeling on Cape Cod Massachusetts. This experience, combined with my life as an artist, creates a line of work focusing on sea life. I’m also a scuba diver, which has deepened my love of the ocean. The visual experience of the deep helps create variety in my work, represented in my coral reef scenes and other aquatic environments. The sense of harmony when being immersed in the ocean helps create emotion that flows into my work using both clarity and color.

To manipulate molten glass with fire is a way to look closer and experience what I love with an almost extreme mode of consciousness. This heightened sense of awareness is what I strive to maintain. It is the same sense I experience while diving. Staying present with my work helps me when trying to find a balance of color, light, transparency, and form. For me, glass is a perfect medium to mimic the sea while reflecting the fragility of the oceans sea life and eco-systems. My designs express what I miss, what I look forward to, and what I dream.”

Jeremy Sinkus first started working with glass in 2002, and was blown away by the possibilities of expression he could learn to reflect in this medium. Using silver, gold, and other metals he found he could achieve a vast array of colors and textures ranging from organic to clear and iridescent.

Using a specially designed torch, Jeremy melts rods and tubes of borosilicate glass at  3000 degrees to sculpt into delicate works of art. In addition to scuba diving, Jeremy is an avid mineral and fossil collector. He travels the country prospecting interesting rocks and gemstones that also inspire his work.

By the Bay Gallery is proud to include the exquisite glass sculpture of Jeremy Sinkus in our ever expanding collection of exceptional America Craft.
