Collaborators Micheal Nourot and Ann Corcoran began making works in glass together in 1974. Nourot Studio has been a long standing staple in the Benicia, CA arts community. Celebrating 4 + decades in business and now with the second generation Nick Nourot at the helm the future continues to shine bright. Nick who began blowing glass at the age of 9 has been an official part of the studio since 2004, taking over as Master Glassblower and Gallery Manager in 2012.

The Studio is known for the unique glass colors they batch with their own glass formulas. Beginning with all the raw ingredients and using Micheal’s glass formulas brought back from Murano Italy, Nick continues the Nourot Studio tradition well into its fourth decade. The spring of 2015 brought the unexpected passing of Micheal Nourot. While the world lost an amazing artist and man the studio will continue on thanks to Nick Nourot and his passion and determination to make incredible works in glass as his parents did for so many decades. Glassmakers to Pope John Paul II, the US Air Force, US Presidents and widely collected by Fine Galleries, Museums and Corporations worldwide. Nourot Glass Studio is known for outstanding quality and value combined within vivid passionate colors and original designs. Every piece is a unique, original work. They are all completely hand formed at the bench and no two are ever exactly duplicated.

Scarlet Nova Series - Perhaps the most recognizable in the Nourot Family of Designs. Scarlet Nova™ was named when this brilliant shade of red was attained and mixed with the swirl or "nova" pattern.

Nourot Studios has become famous for their luscious colors and especially their incredibly rich, deep red colors. A stunning work that glows with an ethereal intensity when lit from above. Nothing compares to the Red of a Nourot!

Vintage Micheal Nourot Murrini Vase Now Available!

Rare Opportunity to own one of Micheal’s signature Murrini Vases. These were rare pieces even while Micheal was alive and with his passing they will only become more rare through time. The Murrini works involved an intense amount of work ranging from batching each of the colors, to making the cane, cutting the cane to individual murrini, arranging the layout, heating up the murrini to proper temperature and then blowing the final form. Several days of immense work for one vessel. From 1981. Mint Condition. Signed with the Nourot coding system along with Micheal Nourot’s signature on the bottom. And like any Nourot piece it is a bit magical how it plays with light and background colors. Once in a lifetime chance. Our great find is your great luck! ;)
