    Minh Martin - Romeo Glass
    “I work in blown glass seeking both beauty and functionality.  I believe that well-executed craft is the antidote to the throw-away culture and that the objects we surround ourselves with should engage our affection and shape our identity.  By making durable and precious objects, we enrich ourselves and ensuing generations.”

    Romeo Glass

    Minh Martin was born in Saigon, Vietnam and spent his early years in the Philippines. Upon returning to the US, his family lived in Lancaster Country, PA, in the Mennonite community from which both his parents derived. He attended Yale University where he majored in Geophysics and where, in his final year, he discovered the art department and took sculpture classes. Upon graduation, he moved to Santa Barbara, CA, where he met The Great Bri'oni and was introduced to the art of glass. After two years of apprenticeship, Bri'oni kicked him out and he returned east. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia with his wife, Anna Shapiro, and their four children.
    Romeo was an old tomcat that prowled around the Santa Barbara studios.
