Jon Kuhn Biography

Technologically Jon Kuhn has pushed beyond the limits of complexity previously possible with laminated glass. It was not uncommon for his incredible sculptures to have 50,000 to 300,000 components. His incredible control enabled him to literally make the glass elements appear to float and move through space.

As early as 1979 Jon Kuhn was recognized for his accomplishments by being included in “The Corning Museum Exhibition, A World-wide Survey” and was the youngest artist working in glass to be acquired by the Metropolitan Museum in New York and he was commissioned in 1993 to make a piece for the White House Collection. Jon Kuhn’s work is featured in many museums including the Smithsonian Institute, the High Museum in Atlanta, Georgia, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamberg, Germany and the Museum des Arts Decoratifs, Switzerland.
