Satava Blue Harvest Moon Vase
- 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. In 1977 he established his own Northern California glass studio called Satava Art Glass, working mostly in the art nouveau style. During most of the 1990s he started to focus more attention on ocean life. A visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium enabled him to view Pacific Coast jellyfish in a setting much like viewing art at a gallery. He spent the next three years experimenting with various formulas to achieve the translucent colors needed to make the Moon jellyfish, which are so successful they are displayed and sold at that and other aquariums.
