Be a San Antonio Local – Gini Garcia

Artist Gini Garcia creates brightly colored, hand-blown glass, transforming it into vivid pieces of functional art: chandeliers, light fixutures, wall sculptures and tableware. Each piece is hand-blown and one-of-a-kind and her work has been placed at resorts and hotels around the world. Gini has a distinctive eye for the most special parts of San Antonio, where you will see “things going on that you won’t see anywhere else,” so take her advice as you explore the city. Her studio, Art Glass, Inc., just south of downtown, welcomes visitors Tuesday thru Saturday, both to shop, and to watch art in motion as a team of glassblowers create finished pieces.
