In 1961 and 1962 artist Harvey ok. Littleton, a professor of good arts on the collage of Wisconsin and son of the director of study on the Corning Glass Works, held a sequence of casual workshops to discover the paintings of scorching glassmaking in a studio atmosphere. until eventually then, nearly with out exception, glass items were blown or molded in an commercial context—that is, they have been manufacturing unit made. within the 1870s, the French dressmaker Emile Gallé had made a thorough swap within the triumphing perspective towards glass as artwork through being the 1st smooth artist to signal his paintings, simply as painters and sculptors did. however, artwork glass endured to be blown in factories, comparable to Orrefors in Sweden, Tiffany within the usa, and Lalique in France. within the Nineteen Sixties, Littleton turned confident, after traveling a couple of eu glassmakers operating by myself, that an artist may keep an entire glassmaking facility inside of a studio; because of his decision and the construction of a low-melting glass formulation by way of artist Dominick Labino, the studio glass flow used to be born.
