The Gallery at Barrio Glassworks features beautifully designed, handmade objects by glass artists from San Diego, Southern California and beyond.  We are dedicated to representing artists at all stages of their career — emerging, mid-career and well established. With roots in the American studio glass movement, we focus on innovative contemporary work by artists who work with glass in unique and innovative ways.


Now through Summer 2022

Steven Ciezki

Steven is the founder of Ciezki Design LLC. With a background in traditional drawing, painting, glassblowing, and photography, he makes art that is meditative and rhythmic. Steven was a resident artist at the prestigious Corning Museum of Glass in 2014, the recipient of the Art Group Creative Fellowship at Canberra Glassworks in 2018, and has lectured and demonstrated at glass studios worldwide in Turkey, Belgium, Australia, Japan, and the USA. Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, he currently splits his time between the coast of Carlsbad, CA and the desert of Phoenix, AZ.


He is woken up by two things in the morning, curiosity and hunger. 

Exhibition Statement 

"I create rhythmic glass sculptures inspired by the meditative practices of stone stacking on the beach."
