Correia Art Glass is of the highest quality and most elegant
design. Its allure is the visual aesthetic of color, form and
tactile sensation yet it is the perfect marriage of art and function.
These pieces beg to be held and used.
The skilled artisans for Correia Art Glass
use the freehand blowing techniques and tools of centuries
past while applying new technology that produces superior results.
Liquid glass, pulled from the furnace’s 2600 degree Fahrenheit
inferno on to long stainless steel pipes, is blown and twirled
and worked in an artful silent ballet of hot glass applied
to hot glass.
The molten magic of fire transforming fine sand from the American
Southwest into glass is an entirely handmade process using our
own formulas of minerals and precious metals. The result is art
achieved through color, shape and light. Designs are garnet-etched
into the surface of the glass, never painted on. Each unique
piece is then signed, dated and registered for authenticity.
The nation’s great museums own Correia
Art Glass. It is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Corning Museum
and the Chrysler Museum of Art. Each year Correia Art Glass
also receives commissions for special pieces from corporations
and public institutions and is included in the White House
Correia Art Glass, located in Santa Monica,
California, is a small family-owned glass studio. It was founded

national reputation by introducing our glass to the finest
retailers and fine art museums.
