Studio Glass, works of art made by glassblowers in their own studios, had its humble beginnings in 1962 in a shed behind the Toledo Museum of Art. Over the past 60 years the art form has grown and developed until it can truly stand evenly with painting or sculpture as a means of artistic expression.
"It is through the insatiable, adventurous urge of the artist to discover the essence of glass that his own means of expression will emerge." Harvey K. Littleton
