Before opening his own glass studio, Gary Genetti worked as an apprentice in rural New York, becoming so intrigued by the material that he would work all day and practice glassblowing all night. He produces his pieces using incalmo, a Venetian technique of combining two glass bubbles into one, and then creates complex designs by sandblasting the outer layer of glass to reveal the underlying colors.
