The Invention of Glass


The Invention of Glass: the Studio Glass Movement from the periphery

John Boswell

The Studio Glass Movement may have been born at famous Toledo workshop in 1962, But it did not come in to the world fully formed, as Littleton himself would be happy to admit. It was a work-in-progress with spontaneous discoveries happening all were over the continent. In that sense, the movement was very inefficient; discoveries were being duplicated independently many times. this, however did not dampen the sense of excitement and feeling of ownership of the material that was widely shared. The mood of this far flung community was collegial. Many of these experiences, or something very similar, were being reenacted all over north America in those heady early days of the studio glass movement by people who may be forgiven for feeling they were not just discovering glass they were inventing it.
