Atlanta native, Nate Nardi always found himself drawn to creative expression through making. He discovered his passion for glassblowing in 2001 and realized that glass art was the discipline he wanted to specialize.

Nate has received commissions to make glass objets d’art for several prominent artists including Kiki Smith and assisted with numerous large scale public installation works such as Jon Christie’s and Caroline Madden’s Lyrical Light, held at the Times Union Center in Jacksonville Florida.

He is currently the owner and operator of Decatur Glassblowing located near downtown Decatur.  His primary artistic expression is the abstraction of natural form which can be seen in all of his work, whether sculptural, decorative, or functional.
