Gini Garcia
San Antonio glass artist Gini Garcia exhibited at the Rockport Art Festival for several years, often winning best of media for her stunning glass creations. Her work continues to appear in the Art Center gift shop and in private collections throughout the state. In 2010, a custom chandelier she designed for the late Marcia Miller was donated to the Art Center by the Judd Miller, Jr. Family, where it is now permanently installed in the Art Center's entryway.

After receiving her B.F.A. in industrial and environmental design, Gini eventually opened a hot glass design and fabrication center that specializes in the creation of one-of-a-kind blown glass lighting and sculpture, including tablescapes and art for the wall. These creations, made to client specifications, range from the functional to the whimsical for homes, corporate offices, restaurants, and hospitals. Recently, she traveled to Murano, Italy and studied the "Chandelier for the New Millennium."
Using blown glass as a filter for light, each of Gini's creations is designed with the overall environment in mind. Recent clients include AT&T, Wells Fargo, United Way, Volvo, and Warner Brothers, as well as numerous restaurants and hundreds of residential commissions. Garcia Art Glass, Inc. employs talented team members with a combined experience of fifty years in design, blown glass fabrication, lighting, metal work and installation.
