ABOUT THE STUDIO
2018: HOT GLASS COMES TO THE HOSTESS CITY
Hostess City Hot Glass was founded in 2018 by glass artist Ronald Martinez. Raised outside Savannah in Metter, Georgia, Ronald was first introduced to glassblowing while in college in the Pacific Northwest. While supporting himself in jobs ranging from salmon fisherman to antiques dealer, Ronald continued to pursue his love of the ancient craft in Seattle and later the Bay Area. After returning to his beloved Savannah with his wife and daughter, Ronald opened Hostess City Hot Glass in 2018. He is blessed to pursue this historic art form full time in such a historic city.
Ronald is joined in the studio by assistant Austin Keough.
