Mark Pavlovits was born and raised in California by a family of artists. Upon completing degrees at the California College of Arts and Crafts and the Gemological Institute of America, he established his studio dedicated to the design and craft of glass in Los Angeles, 2011.
Mark considers glass to be the worlds first technology. He is drawn to the historical and old world craft to glass, where everything is made by hand made precision.
A professional career as a gemologist for nearly a decade has greatly influenced how Mark uses the visual properties of this fluid material. Through explorations in form, texture, light, weight, and the purity found in glass; Mark creates designs that have a minimalist yet sophisticated aesthetic. Inspired by historical artifacts and irregular patterns found in nature, the collections combine the use of both traditional and innovative glass making techniques.
