ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
SANTO NOCE grew up in Missouri, the youngest of three siblings. Both of Santo’s parents were artists and they fostered a love and appreciation of art in all of their children from a young age. Santo’s early exposure to creative self-expression allowed his natural talent for working with color to develop and later translate in his art.
Santo started working with glass in 2005, he apprenticed with Christopher Kerner, known as Cowboy, in Lawrence, KS. After learning a basic skillset, he moved around the country studying from many different glass artists. Santo has mastered shaping, faceting, line work, and also lathe working. Santo tried to move to Oregon but ended up in California. Today he has his own studio in Northern California and you can find his work in stores across the country. He crafts wine glasses, pint glasses, pipes and myriad of other functional art pieces.
