In November 2022, the Lava Aruba Glass Studio opened its doors.

The newly constructed building houses several areas, including a workshop, gallery, café, and administrative offices.

Owned and operated by the Ava family, more than five decades of tradition and experience provide a solid foundation for a new and exciting beginning in Aruba under the leadership of Director Bruno Ava.

The family’s workshop and the gallery was originally founded in Venezuela in 1957, resourcing artists and equipment from Italy to employ the glassblowing techniques used by Venetian artisans on the island of Murano for over eight centuries.

Recognizing the potential Aruba offers and their great trust in the island’s continued economic success, the Ava family is looking forward to sharing the tradition of glassblowing art with local residents and visitors.

Tours of Lava Aruba Glass Studio are free. The large workshop area features several industrial glassblowing ovens set in an open-view space, where visitors can experience the master artisans—typically working in synch in teams of two—and their craft in action. 

The large exhibition gallery features a vast collection of pieces by various artisans inspired by life and nature.  Each piece is exquisitely unique, guaranteeing buyers a one-of-a-kind piece crafted from centuries-old techniques.
