David Garcia


David Garcia was born in San Francisco in 1957. From 1978 to 1980 while working on his landscape architecture degree at Louisiana State University-Baton Rouge, he became interested in glass. This included both flat and hot glass and subsequently studied stain glass with Paul Dufour. After returning to San Francisco in 1981, he resumed his glass studies at San Francisco State University under the tutelage of John Leighton and in 1982 studied hot glass at the California College of Arts and Crafts under Marvin Lipofsky. Garcia ultimately built his own glass studio in 1987. Licensed to practice landscape architecture and the son of an architect, Garcia admits that his work is at times reminiscent of cityscapes through his use of line and multilayered geometric shapes. He also imbues his work with a sense of life and movement by incorporating brilliant colors, random patterns and changeable evolving forms into the same piece. His artistic philosophy stems from his strong belief in relating the ancient art of glassblowing to our contemporary world. The allure to Garcia of working with molten glass is that it resembles fire, yet unlike fire it can be blown and crafted into permanent and intricate forms.
