“We have been working with Tico Tech art glass since we moved into our new showroom in 2007, we started out with a custom back splash in our contemporary display. I went with Rafael to the glass house and chose a fabulous color that went with our showroom and display perfectly. They produced these contemporary glass tiles that are stunning. They have helped us on two Pasadena Showcase Houses, 2007 & 2011.
Since that start to our relationship we have been recommending Tico Tech for art glass, tile back splashes, specialty glass doors & shower enclosures. There is nothing they can’t do that pertains to glass. Their professionalism is outstanding as well.
We cannot say anything but good things about Rafael & Janet Calvo, not only do we call them “Our go to glass company”, we also call them our friends as well.”

“Tico Tech has made 11 windows for us with 6 distinctly different designs. Every window is perfectly suited to its location and they are stunning. Everyone who visits our house comments on how beautiful they are. It is so hard to choose a favorite. I always say my favorite is the one in whichever room I am in! Rafael and Janet completely understood the vision we were trying to create. Working with them was exceptionally easy, they took the time to go over every detail of each window to be sure it was exactly what we wanted. We have 4 more windows to go to finish our house and I can’t wait to see how fabulous they will be.”

“Tico Tech is one of the happier memories in my grueling home remodel. The mirrors and doors that they created are incredibly beautiful and continue to give me joy. However, what makes Tico Tech special are Janet and Rafael, two of the most gracious and ethical individuals you will ever encounter. I cannot praise them enough!”

“I love working with Janet and Rafael. They are both so creative and they bounce off my creativity and create amazing things. They are an incredible team together, very creative and meticulous in the details. I know that if they are on the job, I don’t have to worry about it, and the results are always stunning. I have used them in many different applications and they have always done a great job. I always say, my job isn’t done till it has a piece of them in it, they truly are the icing on the cake.”
“We cannot begin to say enough good things about Janet and Rafael Calvo, the creative duo behind Tico Tech. They transformed our entry from a solid front door with nondescript sidelights to a stained glass masterpiece that opened up the front of our home bringing the outside in for us. Their collaborative design brought in light and captured aspects of both our garden and walkway which we can now enjoy from the inside as well. Not only do we love what they did for us but we enjoyed working with them as a team and appreciated their professionalism and enthusiastic approach to our project.”
