J.L. Crystal Artistry Uses Dichroic Glass to Create Custom Crystal Art
Easton, PA - August 3, 2011 - J.L. Crystal Artistry is using technology adapted from the Space Shuttle program to create custom crystal art.
NASA developed a vacuum process to create dichroic glass for use as a coating filter on the windshields of each space shuttle. Now Jan Lewczenko, founder of J.L. Crystal Artistry, has adapted the same technology to coat surfaces on his custom crystal art pieces. The spectacular, multi-hued effects achieved from the high-tech process come from light reflecting at multiple angles inside the custom crystal art. To get the custom reflections of light, the dichroic vacuum process uses an electron beam to vaporize different metals into multiple layers that condense onto a surface of the custom crystal art. The resulting layers of metal oxides then absorb light at different angles depending on color.
The results are getting noticed.
“Jan Lewczenko is taking crystal mastery to a new realm", says Mat Lewczenko, son of Jan Lewczenko. When asked how he can create such inspirational pieces from crystal, Jan, almost bashfully responds while smiling not from pride, but from joy; “It’s no problem for me, if I can see it in my mind, I can figure it out in crystal.”
Jan Lewczenko is inspired by the art of sculpting crystal by hand, and has worked as a master cutter for more than 40 years. Jan creates custom crystal art from the highest quality materials available, and is passionate for pursuing technology to its cutting edge. He has gained international recognition by creating inspirational, custom crystal works of art for Presidents, Popes, and large multi-national companies.
