Incredible blown & solid glass; the jellyfish ‘lid’ rests lightly on the blown glass bowl by Chico, CA artist Richard Satava.
Richard Satava was introduced to glassblowing in 1969 while at Ocean High School in Pacifica, California. He subsequently studied art and glassblowing at the College of San Mateo and California State University, Chico. As important as the skills that he learned while taking courses was the experience he received at California State University, Chico by being a technician for their glass shop. In 1977 he established his own Northern California glass studio called Satava Art Glass. The art glass that Richard Satava creates is based in nature themes and motifs; these designs have evolved throughout the eighties and nineties, and continue to be created with new colors, shapes, and inspiration.
