Minh Martin of Romeo Glass

Minh Martin works with blown glass at his studio in Waynesboro, Virginia. Born in Vietnam and raised in southeast Asia, he studied Geophysics at Yale University before moving west to apprentice with The Great Bri’oni in Santa Barbara.

You can find a video of Minh creating these wine glasses on his website,

Minh's current work includes glass stemware, such as wine glasses and goblets, glass vessels, such as bowls, vases and urns, and cameo pieces in a variety of beautiful yet functional designs. 

Minh's glass blowing technique incorporates metals such as silver and titanium into the surface design.

Techniques are “hot” with the exception of the Cameo Series, in which glass is blown with two color layers and then carved after annealing.

"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."
