Information provided by the Artist: Satava Art Glass was established in 1977. The art glass Richard creates is based on nature themes and motifs. He uses ancient techniques and modern equipment to create original designs in hand-blown glass vases, bowls, paperweights, and sculptures. His studio has produced pictorial nature scenes with designs like the Harvest Moon, Mt. Shasta, Florals, as well as Native American drawings. In the 1990s, he started to focus more attention on ocean life and nautical themes, creating the Moon Jellyfish and Nautilus series. Stemming from a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which enabled him to view jellyfish in an exceptional setting, much like viewing art at a gallery, he knew then that he needed to capture the nature of the jellyfish in glass. After spending years experimenting with various formulas to achieve the translucent colors needed to make the jellyfish, finally by 1995 the series was ready for display. The Jellyfish series fast became one of his most successful creations.
