Salvador Alane

HISTORY

Salvador Alane is a new line of modern bar and tableware from glass artists Julian Salvador Maturino and Leah Alane Lynn. Julian and Leah began making work together in 2011 at the Penland School of Crafts. They instantly connected over a love of glass and product design. Since 2016, they developed a line of thoughtfully designed glassware. Exploring optics and layers of transparency, their new collection of glassware, decanters, pitchers, serving pieces, and home décor is sophisticated and timeless.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Design and currently works for Forms+Surfaces, an architectural product design company. Julian leads manufacturing.
