New Day Glass

New Day Glass was built as a space for creative cultivation. It all starts with an idea and the tools to bring the idea to existence. When molten glass is inflated into a bubble the possibilities are endless. I have always had the drive to create unique pieces representative of our natural environment. The technique of glassblowing has been around for thousands of years, I welcome you to come see this timeless craft from start to finish in my studio.




215 Burdge Hill Road, Newfield, NY 14867


From Ithaca, my studio is a few miles south on Rte 13 in Newfield. One mile after the 96/34 and Rte 13 split, take the first right on Vanostrand Rd and an immediate left up Millard Hill. Take the first left onto Burdge Hill Rd. Up the hill you will come to our location on the left.

The mailbox is made of glass and metal across from the long driveway that leads to the studio. You will also see a tall metal sign with colorful glass circles that reads 'Scavuzzo 215" next to the driveway. It is important to note that you cannot see the studio from the road. You must drive a quarter mile down the driveway winding through the woods. At the end you will reach the studio with plenty of parking and turn around space. My studio is a large metal industrial building with a glass roll up door and front entrance labeled "Glass Studio."


I started glassblowing in 1993 and graduated from Alfred University in 1996 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts focused on sculpture and glass. Soon after college, New Day Glass was established and I have worked as an independent artist since. After living in the urban setting in the Philadelphia area for a number of years I decided to look for property in a rural setting. The Finger Lakes region of upstate NY was a perfect spot to build my studio. I was drawn to the natural beauty of Ithaca and a community that values creativity. The studio in Newfield was started in 2006 and represents 25 years of hard work and commitment to fine arts. Having a flexible space for creativity allows me to pursue glass in many forms, ranging from handblown glassware and decorative pieces to sculpture, lighting, and beyond. Each day is an adventure.
