WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

Art glass creates an atmosphere of beauty that will blend with the architectural character of any structure or environment. No other art form stimulates one’s senses like art glass. It is a valuable investment and should be considered a vital component of any architectural space.

We started in 1995 as The Art of Glass Inc. and have built strong relationships with architects, contractors, designers and clients. From 2008/2009 we transitioned to J. Michael Designs Inc. to establish a more personalized name separating us from other companies outside of our geographical area with the same name. Although we are based in Southern California, we handle projects throughout CA. We have installed projects as far away as Denver, CO and shipped art glass as far away as Malaysia. We have participated in over a thousand projects and restorations throughout the United States since our conception in 1995 as well as the following noteworthy projects:

  • 1997 – “The Wellness Community Valley/Ventura Design House 1997”
