Rick Strini

"Art that Illuminates."
Rick Strini is recognized as one of the country’s best glass blowers. His distinctive, one-of-a-kind pieces have graced the White House and have been exhibited in museums, including the Smithsonian and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Working from his private studio in Maui , he has delighted art lovers and collectors alike with his stunning custom-designed vases, bowls, glasses and stemware.

Fifty five + years ago, while investigating the Potters wheel and throwing pottery I caught a glimpse of some glass blowing and it really grabbed my interest. An older brother at the time was doing some glass at the college level so this influenced me. I would sneak in to the college and watch what was going on. A teacher friend who I would eventually go to junior college ,to study pottery with, also had a small blowing studio set up. Eager to learn and tired of sitting watching the fun in the glass studio, I set out to build my own studio. The first one in my parents back yard in suburbia circa 1964-65, proved quite rewarding and prosperous. I slowly learned some techniques and garnered some artistic products which I immediately sold. The rest is history. I just kept making glass and following my passion. Now I am specializing in "Custom" Lighting and art glass.
