Glass House in the Jepson Center's ArtZeum
Therman Statom (American b. 1953); Untitled (Glass House), 2005; site-specific glass installation for Telfair Museums; museum purchase, 2009.4.

Therman Statom uses plate glass, paint and objects to make art that often connects to history and to specific places. In his glass house construction for the Jepson Center, Statom uses images related to Savannah and to the collection of Telfair Museums. In the house you will see images of people and places from Savannah’s history, including Native American leader Tomochichi, slave cabins at the Hermitage plantation, turpentine barrels at the city’s port, a Grecian couch from the Telfair Academy, and a doorway shaped like the famous “bird girl” sculpture. Look also for the many different ways that the artist uses glass in this work: plate glass boxes, a blown glass vase, an etched glass panel, pulled and twisted glass, even broken glass.
