Sunday Evening aArt Gallery — 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 he learned while taking courses, was the experience he received at CSU, Chico, as a technician in their glass shop. 

The California-based artist uses a technique in his sculptures called “glass-in-glass,” which consists of a glass sculpture being dipped into a second, molten glass layer.

The bright jellyfishes Satava creates are suspended in the glass that surround them, yet each still appears as if their tentacles are rippling through the water.

The glass blown approach works perfectly when translated to the round bell-like shape of the jellyfish’s body, as their natural appearance looks like brightly blown glass.
