Richard Satava

Satava Art Glass Inc.

"I am outside all the time; my studio is open and part of the natural setting around it. My designs are related to nature, since it is where I like to be. I pay particular attention to vivid colors, high-quality craftsmanship, and the feeling that a design captures. "

Master glass artist Richard Satava is inspired by what he sees around him every day. From the landscapes he observes to the fascinating images he envisions from the depths of the ocean, Satava finds plenty to spur his creativity.

Satava blends centuries-old techniques and modern sensibilities to create original designs in glass. While on the blowpipe, a piece is transformed using exclusive color formulas, then shaped and blown without the use of molds, and finally signed, dated, and numbered. Satava's brilliant colors coupled with his ability to achieve remarkable detail and dimension bring his much sought-after creations to life.

Richard Satava was introduced to glassblowing in 1969 while in high school in Pacifica, California. He then studied art and glassblowing at the College of San Mateo and California State University, Chico, where he was also a technician for the glass shop. In 1977, he established his own glass studio, Satava Art Glass, in Chico, Northern California.
