Jack Pine Glass Artist

Hand-blown glass by Jack Pine
    Smith Galleries is known for their fine collection of hand-blown glass. New to the gallery is the glass pumpkins and gourds handmade by Jack Pine.
    Jack Pine grew up in Circleville, Ohio, located approximately 29 miles South of Columbus. Circleville is home, to one of the largest pumpkin shows nationwide! Jack has spent the last 20 years perfecting the art of glass-blowing, and is well-known to his native area of Circleville, as well as all over the country for his beautiful pieces of art. Jack’s objective as an artist is to create organic art forms out of glass, using incredibly rich colors and a unique style. Jack’s perfection comes from 20 plus years of careful attention to detail, as well as experimenting with a large variety of precious metals and enamels, by layering them on top of each other, to create the most unique designs. Many customer’s find it hard to believe that all of Jack’s art is created only by glass, and that there are no paints involved during the process, but it’s true!     
     Smith Galleries is located at 1000 William Hilton Parkway in suite J11 of the Village at Wexford on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Gallery hours are 10-6 Monday through Saturday. Follow us on Facebook.
