Right outside the studio sits the inviting and exquisitely lit gallery, which showcases Gappa’s stunning collection of signature fine art glass — Gappa Glass — as well as other pieces for sale from a variety of local glass artists.
Step into Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery and you’ll find glass blowers at work, sculpting and turning molten globs of glass with blowpipes, furnaces glowing with fire.
Owned by David Gappa, a former architectural designer, Vetro (Italian for glass) churns out a variety of pieces for both private commissions and the adjacent gallery, which also sells blown, fused and sculpted pieces from artists around the world.

You’ve been asking about the start of the sale, and it has finally arrived! Gappa and his team have an incredible inventory this year of seconds – pieces that didn’t make the gallery cut but are undoubtedly considered fine art glass. There might just be a slight imperfection that most eyes can’t detect, a color variance that wasn’t intended by the artist, or for whatever reason the piece didn’t get a nod of final approval. Hundreds of creations for 25% to 75% off normal gallery prices.
