During 1990, local entrepreneur Sebastian Romo opened what was, for many years, the only hand-blown glass factory on the Baja Peninsula. Vitrofusion, located out on the bypass road to Todos Santos, was originally started to meet the demands of local hotels and restaurants. For many years Romo had to bring his maestros from the mainland, now the technique is firmly entrenched here in Cabo San Lucas. Today the foundry employs over 30 artisans who produce close to 500 one-of-a-kind pieces daily. Using recycled, lead-free glass, the maestros create custom orders for hotels, restaurants and retail shops as well as original pieces for groups and individual buyers.
