Garcia Art Glass was founded in 1998. 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.

Located on the south bank of the San Antonio River, La Villita was San Antonio’s first neighborhood. It was originally a settlement of primitive huts for the Spanish soldiers stationed at the Mission San Antonio Valero (the Alamo). After a flood in 1819, brick, stone and adobe houses replaced the earlier structures.
