Gustavo Santana has over 25 years experience in glass creation. He is well-recognized for designs he created exclusively for Correia Art Glass of Santa Monica, California. His love of plants and animals are reflected in the designs he creates for almost all of his bowls, vases and plates. Before opening his own studio in 2005, he also worked for other well-known glassblowers in Southern California and abroad creating pieces for individual, corporate and industrial clients.
In the realm of hand-blown and etched art glass, Santana’s work stands out for its richness in color and detail. He is a master at utilizing a glassblower’s torch and sandblasting tools for hand carving and creating images on the surface of the glass.
