Chris Tedesco Glassblowing
Chris Tedesco has been a sculptor and glass artist for over 30 years. His work is represented internationally and he has shown at the LH Selman Gallery and the Traver Gallery in Seattle. Since establishing Tedescoglass in Santa Cruz, Chris has designed and produced architectural, sculptural and functional glass and glass lighting.
Now he is introducing his newest product lines: Tedescoglass Bags, “The Collectors Handbag” and RoccaWare. Tedescoglass Bags combine Chris’ exquisite craftsmanship with his unsurpassed imagination to create uncommon versions of that common accessory, the lady’s handbag.
RoccaWare combines functionality with the unique esthetic of Tedescoglass. Inspired by the Neapolitan light of Chris’ ancestral homeland, these jewel-like individually handcrafted pieces are created in two forms: pedestal plates and cylinder vases, juxtaposed with metal or wood structures that articulate the glass through a context of form.
