Romeo Glass: Minh Martin


 "I work in blown glass, seeking both beauty and functionality. I believe that art/craft is the antidote to the throw-away culture and that the objects we surround ourselves with should engage our affection and elevate our collective identity. By making precious and durable objects, we enrich ourselves and ensuing generations." ~ Minh Martin

Minh was born in Saigon, Vietnam and raised in southeast Asia. After studying Earth Science at Yale University, he apprenticed with The Great Bri’oni in Santa Barbara, California. He currently works and lives in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife, artist Anna Shapiro, and their daughter, Sophia.

Minh uses traditional tools and techniques to create his elegant pieces. Precious metals such as silver and titanium are a signature of his work. The current work incorporates silver and titanium into the surface design.  

Minh Martin's work can be found in museums, private collections and galleries across the country.
