Celebrating Independence With Satava Art Glass

Published on 06/30 at 08:33 AM

                                                       Golden Valley Bank 10th Anniversary Logo

As we commemorate our 10 year Anniversary in 2016, we want to celebrate with our community and the independence of local business owners.


Owner of Satava Art Glass, Rick Satava is celebrating independence with us as a local, successful business owner. For the past 35 years, Rick and his team have been creating stunning original designs, including their world-renowned Jellyfish. Rick worked hard for five years to ensure he got the translucent jelly fish portrayed as it should through the beautiful process of glassblowing.

Rick was introduced to glass blowing in 1969 and has built his business to be one of the most successful Art Glass studios in the country. His work is representative to pictorial nature scenes and ocean life. His most successful design, the Moon Jellyfish, was inspired by a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Rick’s hand-blown vases, depicting beautiful natural landscapes, influenced Rick’s creation of the stunning vase he made for Golden Valley Bank.

Rick’s work is remarkable, detailed and one-of-a-kind. See more of his work in our video above.

                                   Golden Valley Bank 10th Anniversary Logo

As we commemorate our 10 year Anniversary in 2016, we want to celebrate with our community and the independence of local business owners.


Next up is the story of Wild Ink Press, a local letterpress studio. Owner and designer Rebekah Tennis started Wild Ink Press in 2009, springing out of a desire to create a cherished, finished product. After working in both a corporate design firm and as a freelance designer, she longed to create art that was truly unique.

The company has grown and expanded over the years, and now are a staff of seven, have a retail and printing space in downtown Chico where they still do what they started at the beginning: design cards, print them on old presses, one ink color at a time, and package them with care for people all around the world to give and receive.

Rebekah’s video above tells her story in her own words. You will see her creations in the making and their path to completion. Golden Valley Bank was lucky enough to have Wild Ink Press create a beautiful card just for us! We are proud to partner with Rebekah and her team at Wild Ink Press. We welcome you to come join us!
