The vision was to innovate modern glass design in architecture, lighting, blown glass and sculpture
Since his first introduction to glassmaking in 1989, Jon Lewis has become fluent in many glass disciplines. He has exhibited worldwide and has produced blown, cast, stained glass and numerous commissions, both architectural and sculptural.
As well as working on his own glass creations, Jon offers a unique service to assist clients with their bespoke projects.
With a wealth of experience in many glass techniques and disciplines, Orbic glass is able to offer consultation, design, prototyping and manufacturing in glass in many forms. With a can do, anything is possible attitude, Orbic Glass has helped to realise project proposals from many clients.
Jon has worked on many recycled glass projects in collaboration with Liquid Projects, constructing a hot glass studio at design events to demonstrate live glass blowing and upcycling to live audiences using melted TV screens and bottles.
Jon is constantly making new work. His blown glass is constantly evolving. In recent years Jon has been working on large glass wall pieces. These could be called three dimensional paintings; they are concerned with ever changing colour fields and structures.
Every piece of Jon’s art has a twist. Each of his designs can be traced back to a sketch, sometimes scribbled many years before just waiting for that last ingredient of inspiration for it to become a reality
