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

These are just a few of the things being said about the one-of-a-kind pieces coming from the Gomolka Design Studio. GDS is a European taught art glass design studio and fabricator 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 glass has multiple applications, from countertops to showers, wall dividers to stairwells, 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 contemporary to traditional. 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 project and hold themselves responsible, from concept to delivery. We fully recognize that no customer owes us his or her business, and we look at each project as a new opportunity to justify your confidence in not only our quality, but our services as well. There is no job that is too small nor any too large – from “one-offs” to multiple production runs, we will be here to accommodate your needs.

A quick look at our product line will give you a good idea of our experience and dedication to our craft.
