Jack Storms is a remarkable artist who works out of Los Angeles. He has mastered a phenomenally rare style of glass art work combining lead crystal and dichroic glass using a cold-glass process. The number of glass artisans working in this form of fine art could be counted on one hand.
”What I do is I don’t use any heat at all, I grind and grind and grind and then I polish, that’s what separates me from everybody else. It’s much more difficult and it takes a lot more time. But for me the effects are just brilliant.”
Because of the labor involved and the level of perfection each piece can take from 8 to 18 weeks to complete.
Drawing inspiration from both his heart and his mind when conceiving his artistic designs, at the heart of each lead crystal sculpture by Jack Storms lays the theory of Fibonacci, a great mathematician that articulated the natural math seen in nature. Natural beauty is created, not manufactured. From the repetition 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.
