Artist Website

After growing up on a cattle ranch in New Mexico, Scott Pernicka began painting and creating 3D sculptures in college. He enjoys exploring the intersection of painting, sculpture and science and finds handcrafted artisan glass is the perfect medium for his artistic vision.

Scott is known for his captivating vortex marbles which combine beautiful color patterns with an optical illusion of infinite space.

To create his magical spheres, he melts top quality borosilicate glass at 3000°, adds crystallized metals and metal oxides and shapes the glass into perfectly formed spheres you can hold in the palm of your hand.

Scott’s award-winning art appears in galleries and private collections throughout the United States.
