Philadelphia glass artist Jeremy Grant-Levine (aka Germ) is spending 2018 making 1000 glass cranes. This project's focus is slow art feeding into a larger vision, a contemporary interpretation of a Japanese tradition. One artist, without assistance, on a quest for balance. The final collection of cranes will be displayed in an immersive installation in Spring 2018 in Philadelphia.
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 2 miles of wire hardware for the final installation. The final installation of all 1000 glass cranes will be exhibited in Philadelphia, PA in spring 2018.
This project was partially funded with the support of 381 backers through Kickstarter. All reserved cranes will be delivered after the final installation is complete.
Jeremy's work has been displayed in galleries in Seattle, Philadelphia, New York, Miami, and Tel Aviv. He has taught workshops and collaborated with artists all over the world.
