Architectural Art Glass, Thick Glass Countertops, Slumped Glass, Glass Flooring, Sandblasted Glass, and More

"Stunning.” “Elegant." "Sure to embellish any setting."

These are just a few of the things being said about the one-of-a-kind art glass coming from the Gomolka Design Studio. GDS is a European taught design studio and fabricator of custom architectural glass products, located in the heart of Carlsbad, on the beautiful coast of north county San Diego, California.

We have been in business since 1983, and though we specialize in cast/slumped glass, we have vast experience in many other methods and techniques. Our custom art glass has multiple applications, including thick glass countertops, glass shower and bath stalls, glass wall dividers, glass stairways, and glass flooring, and it can be installed in residential as well as commercial settings.

Need direction? Gomolka Design Studio will work with your thoughts and ideas to design a project of any type - from a contemporary glass countertop to a traditional cast glass wall divider. Combining your inspirations and our “know-how” results in endless possibilities!

Above all, customer service has been the hallmark of the Gomolka Company for its entire existence. Our experienced and knowledgeable sales associates are 100% committed to your custom glass project, and they hold themselves responsible, from concept to delivery.

We fully recognize that no customer owes us their business, and we see each project as a new opportunity to justify your confidence in not only the quality of our products, but our customer service as well. There is no job that is too small nor any too large – from a “one-off” glass backsplash to multiple production runs of glass flooring or stairs, we will be here to accommodate your needs.

We are confident that if you spend just a little time on our site, our knowledge, experience, and dedication to our craft will shine through.
