David P Salazar Glass

Exquisite glass vases, paperweights, perfume bottles and marbles

Combining Glassblowing & Design Since 1972

David Salazar has been a glassblower and designer for over 40 years. He began in 1972 at Lundberg Studios in Davenport, California. Using new techniques to decorate glass, he eventually became their chief designer. Some of his pieces during this period were exhibited at the Corning Museum of Glass.

It was during this time that he became associated with Larry Selman, one of the foremost paperweight dealers in the world. David’s work has been featured in many of Selman’s catalogues, as well as books for the paperweight collector. David also exhibited pieces at the Tiffany Exhibit for the Museum of Art in Chicago.

In 1988, David’s work in miniatures, and his association with Bert Cohen, marble dealer, led to doing marbles in flower and sea life patterns, as well as traditional swirls. His Angelfish marble was featured in the April 1988 issue of the Smithsonian Magazine. Today, his marbles are some of his most popular items, and he carries over 30 different kinds, including holiday motifs, flowers, moon & star patterns, doves, and whales. His work is featured in many periodicals and reference books, including Marilyn Barrett’s book, Immies, Aggies, Shooters and Swirls, The Art of the Paperweight by L.H. Selman, and Mark Block’s, Contemporary Marbles and Related Art Glass.

David continues to design and create new and exquisite glass vases, paperweights, perfume bottles, and marbles in his studio.
