"I'm so excited to help Hollywood's biggest stars commemorate their special night," says Thoman. "By recreating their favorite photo in stained glass, it's the perfect way to capture this moment in time forever. Win or lose, they are all shining stars, and that's the point of the "Everyone Wins Gift Bags."
John Thoman's work has been captivating Hollywood's hottest stars and the word is quickly spreading. JSJ Custom glass portraits are perfect for celebrities and others who are looking for that special, one of a kind idea to surprise those "impossible to shop for" family and friends. JSJ creates one of a kind, unforgettable works of glass art for some of Hollywood's brightest stars.
"My first portrait was for someone who wanted to commemorate a lost relative. It literally brought tears to my eyes and to hers as I worked on it. The moment I presented the finished piece, the sun's rays made the hair glisten and brought a sparkle to the eyes -- I still can't believe how my work has touched so many Hollywood stars."
Though he keeps many of his clients private, John's work has graced the sets of t.v. shows, restaurants, and some of L.A and New York's most exclusive homes. From intricate detailed pieces to full scale large scenic installations, his work is a sight to behold.
"Each time I present a finished piece, it's the most special moment for me," says Artist Thoman. I put hours and hours of detailed work into every part of the process… from choosing the perfect styles and cuts of glass, with the most vibrant and rich colors, to making sure I capture each signature feature that will bring my subjects to life in glass. Then when the sun hits it, the whole piece illuminates in a way no other portrait can."
Having grown up in New Jersey, it was on a trip to England to visit his mother's gravesite that John was so moved by the stained glass at St. Michael's church, he knew it would be his calling. Now he runs the esteemed JSJ Stained Glass Studio in Palm Springs, where he lives with his wife Sheli (a retired elementary school teacher) and his father-in-law Jerry (a former Marine.) John's unique celebrity glass portraits have earned JSJ national media attention and a passionate following across the country, and even internationally. JSJ gives back to many charities, including Desert Aids Project, Wounded Warriors Project, American Cancer Society, and ACT for Multiple Sclerosis.
