[Storms Fine Art] – Glass sculpture artist Jack Storms has achieved serious recognition in both the public arena and the demanding world of fine art, since he opened his own studio in 2004.
Storms works in an incredibly rare medium. A true pioneer in the cold-glass world, Storms’ award-winning work is sought by discriminating collectors around the world and has been commissioned for award ceremonies, as commemorative pieces and even as an emissarial gift to the President of Nigeria. Storms is one of the best-selling glass artists in the country today. Currently, there is up to a six-month waiting list for some of his pieces.
Storms recently moved his studio to 25520 Avenue Stanford #314 in Valencia. The studio is open daily by appointment only.

Drawing inspiration from both his heart and his mind when conceiving his artistic designs, Storms uses the Fibonacci sequence at the heart of each lead crystal sculpture. Fibonacci was a great mathematician that articulated the natural math seen in nature. Natural beauty is created, not manufactured. From the repetition on the florets of a flower to the scales of a pineapple’s skin, Fibonacci numbers are found in the pattern of growth of every living thing in nature.
He combines pure, lead crystal and dichroic glass through a cold-glass production process. These beautifully reflective, hand-sculpted pieces begin with a core of dichroic glass pieces, each cut, polished and laminated until they shine like mirrors. This core is then wrapped in sculpted, optic glass which refracts the light passing through the pieces and creates a hypnotic light show of fire and ice colors, which are incredibly beautiful and coveted by all who lay eyes on them.
This sculpture process is incredibly intense and physically challenging. In the entire world, there are only a handful of fine glass artisans working in this medium. It can take up to ten weeks to create just one of these amazing designs, longer for large and specialized pieces.
