Richard Satava, a master glass blower, was introduced to glassblowing in 1969 while attending Ocean High School in Pacifica, CA. He then studied at the College of San Mateo and California State University, Chico. He later opened Satava Art Glass Studio in Chico in 1977.
Using ancient techniques to create original designs in hand blown glass, Satava creates works of art, individually crafted, by carefully combining the highest degree of technical skills and artistic creativity. Well known for his vivid colors and unique portrayal of nature, Satava’s work is included in numerous public and private collections throughout the world.
