1000 Glass Cranes
March 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Philadelphia glass artist Jeremy Grant-Levine (aka Germ) is going to spend one year blowing no less than 1000 glass cranes. The cranes will then become an immersive installation. One artist, without assistance, on a quest for balance. This project’s focus is slow art feeding into a larger vision, a contemporary interpretation of a Japanese tradition.
This is the largest project Jeremy has undertaken in his 13 years of blowing glass. It requires over 200 pounds of hand-colored glass, and over a mile of wire hardware for the final installation. The final installation of all 1000 glass cranes will be exhibited in Philadelphia, PA.
