JASON MACK | 1,000 Year Old Flower

1,000 Year Old Flower

Created from recycled beer and wine bottles. The addition of a vintage road sign generates the dystopian feeling this flower grew out of the past and has been here for 1,000 years.

Jason Mack has lived and worked in Champaign, IL since 2014 when he moved down from the Chicago suburbs, Downers Grove.

Jason first melted glass when he took a glass bead-making class with his mom at age 17. In 2007, Jason graduated from Illinois State University with a BS in studio art with a focus in glassblowing. Since then, he has created a style and method of building large, on-site steel and glass sculptures using a mobile glass furnace he designed and built in his garage.
