Artist, Glass Teacher
Pedro Palma possesses one talent that stands out among his many others. That is passion. Whether Pedro was assisting me in marketing and design for fund raising sales, or designing, building and installing work stations in the studio, his passion for quality work was clearly evident in all that he did.
Over the years, I have consulted with Pedro Palma on numerous design-build projects, and no matter what was needed to successfully complete the job at hand, Pedro was ready. Although I consider Pedro to be an expert in the design, construction, and fabrication of glass, I have relied on his talents in projects involving wood and metal fabrication, as well as budgeting and estimating. Pedro has shown time and again that he is a problem solver, and whether your projects requires a motivated and creative mind to design your press releases and get them to television and radio, or you need art work and interiors designed fabricated, Pedro Palma is the one to trust.

It was a pleasure working with Pedro Palma. He was knowledgeable about DIY, punctual and reliable. Pedro took the tasks at hand seriously and came with his own suggestions about finding the best solutions. We are very happy with the end result and hope he can help us out again in the future for other small work around the house. He is also very easy to communicate with, and a super friendly person.

When we asked Pedro Palma to design something special for our apartment, we had no idea how incredible the result would be. Pedro has a unique talent. He is a master craftsman, and an expert in interior design. Perhaps even more importantly, he is able to translate the needs and wants of a client, like myself and my family, into something better than we could have ever imagined.
