Katya Wittenstein was raised along the stunning Pacific coastal environs of Santa Barbara, California the stark, subtle, and varied colors of the land and seascapes shaped Katya’s eye for design and hue early in her life.Katya lived and traveled widely abroad, studying many forms of artistic expression and design including painting, sculpture, and glass before ultimately concentrating on glass jewelry. What began as one of many forms that intrigued her has developed over the last 30 years into a passion for the colors, chemistry, metallurgy and craftsmanship that must flow into each piece.Today Katya works from a studio in the storybook, bayside village of Sausalito, California, by the famous San Francisco Bay.As she has from her earliest creative days, Katya remains physically close to the colors and forces of nature which characterize her and her art.
