Artist Creates Incredible Glass Sculptures

Watch This Talented Artist Create Stunning Glass Sculptures Using Fibonacci Ratios

Jack Storms, an artist out of Los Angeles, creates absolutely stunning glass sculptures using the Fibonacci Ratio. More on that in a moment.
Jack was a student and a scholar growing up in New Hampshire, but he wouldn't discovery his passion for art until quite a while later. Jack graduated with a BA in Art from Plymouth State University and set to work making these stunning glass sculptures.

The intense cold-glass process which can take up to 24 weeks for each contemporary glass sculpture to come to life begins at the heart of the design, by creating a core of lead crystal which is cut, polished and laminated creating reflective mirrors. When wrapped in optical glass, the refraction of light as it passes through the glass creates rainbows of hypnotic color.

The drawn out process of repetitive cutting, grinding and polishing requires intense passion, rigid self discipline, and more blood sweat and tears than any artisan could wrap their mind around. The results, are mind boggling works of contemporary glass art.

Pretty neat, huh? For more on his sculptures, check out the video below:
