Correia Sand Mineral and Metal Art Glass and Sculpture

Correia possesses the molten magic of fire transforming fine sand from the American Southwest into glass in an entirely handmade process using their 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. These limited edition lamps, cases, perfume bottles, bowls and paperweights make wonderful home accents and gifts. After completion, each piece is signed and dated and ships with a Certificate of Authenticity, protecting its value for the future.

Correia Art Glass is one of the highest quality and most elegant designed art glass in the world. Its allure is the visual aesthetic of color, form and tactile sensation making it the perfect marriage of art and function. The etched hand blown glass is striking, the animal, floral and abstract design is paired perfectly with bold colors and black accents making the color pop.

Using freehand blowing techniques, traditional tools and their own glass and color formulas, Correia creates elegant glass art from the fine sand of the American Southwest. Liquid glass, pulled from the furnace’s 2600 degree Fahrenheit inferno on to long stainless steel pipes, is blown, twirled and worked in an artful silent ballet of hot glass applied to hot glass. Correia glass continues the perfect union of art and craft. It is of the highest quality and the most elegant design in the industry. The visual allure of Correia Art Glass, its bewitching form and tactile sensation make it a work of art to be cherished.

Correia Art Glass, located in Santa Monica, California, is a small family-owned glass studio. Nationally recognized glass artist Steven Correia founded it in 1973.

Algerine Correia, the principal designer, stays in the heat of the creative process and works on a daily basis with the glass blowing artisans. Along with her brother Jeffrey Correia, their avant-garde design statements help keep Correia Art Glass in the forefront of studio glass. Jeffrey Correia is an artist in tune with contemporary art glass, at home on the glass-blowing floor. The Correia family cherishes being able to create their own designs for the retail market and for one-of-a-kind commissions.

Some of 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 art holdings. Correia glass can be found in select galleries world wide as well as many private collections.
